Teen Advisory Board Conducts Period Products Drive

Hi, it’s Jason, Young Adult Librarian

The Teen Advisory Board and I are happy to announce the start of our period product drive. We are collecting supplies in order to stock our restrooms for patrons. Supplies will be free for all to use – no questions asked – and will be replenished by Teen Advisory Board volunteers on a regular basis as donation amounts allow.

The collection bin is located at the front of the library near the restrooms. It is also next to the CHOW box, which collects food for those in need. Donations of unopened period supplies of all varieties are welcomed and greatly appreciated.

If you have any questions, please direct them to the Youth Services Department!

Thank you!

Garden State Teen Book Awards – Voting is Open!

Have you heard of Garden State Teen Book Awards (GSTBA)?

Each year, librarians from across the state compile lists of the best books. Now, it is time for you to vote from those lists! 

There is a display in the Young Adult Department where all of the books (that are checked in) can be found. Otherwise, you may look at the ballots to find other options that might not be available immediately.

Then, click the links below to vote on your favorites. Voting ends December 31st.

All of the books came out within the past 2 years, so it is possible you’ve already read a bunch of them!

6-8 Fiction

9-12 Fiction

6-12 Non-Fiction

Happy reading!

Jason, Young Adult Librarian
