Library seeking books for children in need

The East Brunswick Public Library, Jean Walling Civic Center, is accepting donations of new paperback and hardcover books for the Books to Keep holiday-season program.

Books to Keep and the children’s librarians of Middlesex County have partnered for more than 20 years with nonprofit groups that serve disadvantaged children in the county. The books are given to children who could not otherwise afford to buy their own.

Monetary donations to support the purchase of books also will be accepted.
