Our new database focuses facing today's teens.

The library has subscribed to the Rosen Teen Health & Wellness Database, a wonderful database created just for teens to learn about topics that matter most to them. 

Teens will find articles about dating, sexual health, drug and alcohol abuse, academic pressure, bullying, depression, eating disorders, and so much more.  Articles are written in a language and style that appeals to teens. 

The database can also be used for research papers about the human body and social issues.  There’s even a “Share Your Story” articles written by teens, and an advice column called “Ask Dr. Jan.”  The database can be found on the library’s main website and also the health portal at

Donate to Books to Keep

Donate to Books to Keep

Posted December 06, 2014

The Library is accepting donations of books and money to be given to the Books to Keep Program.

The Books to Keep program is now accepting donations of new paperback and hardcover books for children at the East Brunswick Public Library.  For more than 20 years the children’s librarians of Middlesex County have been partnering with programs that serve disadvantaged children such as Head Start sites, afterschool programs, homeless shelters and faith based groups. Books are a gift to children who otherwise cannot afford to buy their own.

Monetary donations are also being accepted to supplement the donated books. Make a child smile this holiday season by sharing a special book with the Books to Keep program. For more information please call the library’s Youth Services Department at 732-390-6789.
