The East Brunswick Public Library Celebrates Additional Space and Services

Posted October 29, 2009 B By John Saccenti


Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony
Sunday, November 8th from 2 to 4 p.m.

The East Brunswick Public Library is pleased to announce the completion of a 2,000-square-foot "push out" that will provide more space for children’s programming, quiet reading and study and information on health issues.  A ribbon- cutting ceremony for the $230,000 capital project will be held on Sunday, November 8, from 2 to 4 p.m.  On hand will be Mayor David Stahl, Township Council members, the East Brunswick Public Library Board of Trustees, Friends of the Library, representatives from the Department of Aging and more. Also being celebrated will be the newest addition to the Library family, A Novel Café, which recently began serving delicious food, drinks and snacks at the Library.
 
The push out, which was accomplished by "pushing out" under an overhang in the back of the library, is an addition to the original 1976 building and includes an adult quiet reading area, a quiet study room and a children’s programming room. The adult quiet reading area is open to adults 18 and older and includes a fireplace and comfortable furniture provided by the Friends of the Library to give it the relaxing, stress- free feeling of your very own living room.  In conjunction with the construction project, the Library won a contract with INFOLINK, the regional library cooperative, to create a concept space for the baby boom generation and their elders. The contract is being used to launch a "Just For the Health of It" initiative which will provide a consumer health pull out collection, in-depth medical research and a customized computer interface to help residents find the most up-to-date information on any health or wellness issue. Please join us in on November 8th to celebrate this long awaited addition to the Library and the East Brunswick community.
