How to load jquery twice?

I am kind of new to the web development space. One of the things that gets me a little confused is when using someone else's plugin/code to enhance my site.

For example, trying to add a calendar or gallery to my site that is using foundations. The foundations loaded theirs at the bottom. Some of the plugins i downloaded recommended loading theirs at the top by the header.
Some sites recommends it to always be at the bottom.

Question : How do i best load jquery when there is a need to include multiple versions, and one calls for it to be at the top, and one calls for it to be at the bottom? I am considering moving the bottom one to the top, and just use the one. But i am not sure if the different version will break my page somehow.

need to include multiple versions
You only load the jquery library once, and it's preferable to have it before your closing BODY tag along with any plugins, unless there is a specific reason for it to run during the page load.

Thanks, when it seems like there is a need for multiple versions, do i just load the newest one and see what happens then? What if one or more of the plugins break? I have seen a .noconflict solution suggested, but I can't seem to implement it correctly.

You can use the noconflict to assign one library to a different identifier but in general it's a bad idea - just use the latest version - 1.x.x for IE8 support or 2.x.x if you only support modern browsers
