THE BRIDGETON Public Library was one of two public libraries to win the New Jersey State Library’s Book Giveaway Contest for Teen Read Week! As one of the chosen winners, the library received two hundred and nine books to add to its Teen Section. Participants were invited to submit a short application describing why they felt their library should win the books and how winning would help them better serve their teen populations. The selection of two public libraries and two middle and two high school libraries by independent judges was based on their answers to this question. Pictured with the books from left are Teen Library Council members Emily Glenning, Athena Colon, Jon Kelley, Jay Knight, Joseph Medley, Children’s Librarian Terri Carpenter and Kevin Austin.
