Books for Kids Collection Drive
The Teaneck Public Library is holding its annual Books for Kids book donation drive from November 3rd through December 8th. Last year thousands of children with limited access to books from all across New Jersey were given the chance to own a book of their very own through this very important program. Give a child the gift of reading by bringing a new book or books to the library's collection box located in the Youth Services Department. Books for children and teens are needed.
Early Literacy Station
The Friends purchased an Early Literacy Station for the Children's Department. This dynamic all-in-one digital learning station for children ages 2 to 8 features more than 60 educational software titles spanning seven curricular areas. It is easy and fun for children to use.
This gift was made possible in part by donations made in memory of Patrick Crowley, who, along with his wife, Jane Erwin, was a long-time and active supporter of the Friends.
