EBPL Launches Awesome Box

EBPL Launches Awesome Box

Posted December 08, 2015

The East Brunswick Public Library (EBPL) unveiled a new book drop on Saturday, December 5 – the Awesome Box! Not just any book drop, the EBPL Awesome Box is designed to give patrons a way to share what awesome things they found at the library. Using the box is easy – just use this box to return any items you’ve checked out from EBPL and loved. Discover a new author? Fell in love with a classic? Tried a new series that you can’t get enough of? Return it to the Awesome Box so we know to tell everyone about it! Lowe’s Home Improvement of East Brunswick generously built and donated the box for the community to enjoy.

The Awesome Box is a way to open a dialogue with the East Brunswick community about the books, movies and music they have found at the library and enjoyed. Kids, teens and adults can all participate, and EBPL staff will be displaying favorites along with the box, which will be located next to the circulation desk.

East Brunswick has great taste and loves sharing - EBPL staff is always hearing what patrons liked reading, watching and listening to. What better way to celebrate that by giving patrons a new way to tell us - and their community - what they enjoyed?

The Awesome Box is the latest in a series of initiatives and events to celebrate our community’s love of reading. EBPL also offers match+book, customized reading suggestions at, “Read This Book” video book reviews that share staff and patron favorites, and the popular monthly book and story discussion groups.
