A percentage of all purchases that day will be donated to the Foundation, helping with its goal of providing funding for ongoing and future projects at the East Brunswick Public Library.

People can either present a voucher or mention the library at the cash register to have their purchase count toward the fundraiser.

“It will be a great time to stock up on summer reading while supporting the library and the mission of the Foundation,” said East Brunswick Public Library Foundation development committee chairperson Jennifer Doktorski.

Doktorski will speak as part of the Teen Book Fest panel discussion at 3 pm. She will join other young adult authors Crissa Chappell, Sandy Hall, Phoebe North and Lindsay Ribar.

In addition to the panel, East Brunswick Public Library staff host several family activities throughout the day. The schedule is:

10 am: Kids Craft

11 am:  Children's Story Time

12 pm: STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Activity and BB-8 Obstacle Course

1 pm:  Adult Coloring

Library staff can register children for the Summer Reading program and the Foundation will raffle off four summer reading themed baskets when the fair is over. Additionally, teen Post-It Note artists will decorate the store's windows and cupcake decorating is available near the café area.

Online purchases made from June 11-16 will count toward the fundraiser. When checking out, enter the bookfair ID 11861234.
