Bridge of Books provides an ongoing source of books to under-served children throughout New Jersey in order to support the development of literacy skills and encourage a love of reading. Look for collection sites in the children's department and at our local East Brunswick public schools.  The HPA will also be hosting several events this month to encourage donations.
