The Friends of the Cranford Public Library invite you to join rock/pop historian Vincent Bruno for “The Sixties: The Pop/Rock Era.” This two-hour presentation, which includes audio-clips and slides, explores the rise of the many innovative artists who created new sounds that captivated a generation, and whose influence endures five decades later.  From the remarkable Brill Building songwriters (Burt Bacharach, Carol King) to the art of Bob Dylan, from Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound, to the California magic of Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys, Mr. Bruno will examine folk, rock, R&B, and pop, as well as the rock festivals that defined the era. In addition to his work as a rock historian, Mr. Bruno has taught in a number of settings for more than 35 years, including stints at LaGuardia Community College, Empire State College, and Union County College. Admission is free and all are welcome.

    The Township, located in the heart of Union County, was incorporated in 1871 and through the years the business district and neighborhoods sprang up around the train station and the Rahway River. Today, the downtown, the river and the train station remain valued amenities to more than 22,000 residents in the four square mile township.

    By 1885, there were 76 residents commuting daily from Cranford to New York City. Today, close to 1,000 people take the train every day from Cranford’s Train Station.

    Cranford is a close knit community where many of its residents are actively involved in schools, sports, civic and community organizations. The Township is proud of its recreational facilities that include two outdoor pools, an indoor pool and fitness complex, bike path, canoe club, tennis courts, sports fields and parks. Cranford has a first rate K-12 school system.

    The Township operates under a Committee form of government with five commissioners elected at-large for three year terms. The commissioners decide who will serve as mayor and deputy mayor for a one-year terms. Four of the commissioners have oversight assignments for the various departments and municipal operations.
