Thanks for all your contributions! Members of the Library's Teen Advisory Board (TAB) organized a successful donation drive for those affected by Hurricane Sandy this past week.
Dozens of donated items were taken to the Monmouth County Donation Center at Thompson Park on Friday, Nov. 16.
After consulting with county officials at the donation center about needed items, TAB members decided to concentrate their efforts on collecting boxed cereal and pet food. Teens used the monthly TAB meeting on Nov. 14 to collect items. A donation bin was also placed at the circulation desk of Library Headquarters in Manalapan for the public to contribute.
Thanks to all Library teens who helped make the drive a success, and thanks to TAB coordinator Elaine Siegel and Teen and Young Adult Program coordinator Veronica Stevens for their guidance.
