Books for Kids is a program sponsored during the holiday season by the New Jersey Library Association to collect books for needy children of all ages. Again this year, Bernardsville Public Library is joining the effort. Members of the community are invited to bring a new, unwrapped book (or books) to the Library to be placed under the annual Giving Tree. Books for infants through teens are needed and will be collected from Monday, November 22 through Wednesday, December 15. The books are distributed to children and teens throughout New Jersey who have limited access to books, including those at the Martin Luther King Youth Center in Bridgewater and the Resource Center for Women.
“Community members have always been very generous with their book donations,” said Michaele Casey, Youth Services Librarian. “We know the children look forward to receiving the books each year, and for some children this may be the only book in their personal library. All the book donations are gratefully accepted.”
