Books for Kids 2012
The Cranford Public Library’s twentieth annual “Books for Kids” campaign will run from Saturday, November 3, to Saturday, December 8. Each year thousands of disadvantaged children from all across New Jersey are given the chance to own a new book of their very own through this very important program. Give a child the gift of reading by bringing a new, unwrapped book to the library collection box. Books for children from preschool through age fourteen are needed. They will be distributed by the Cranford Family Care Association to local families in need. Established in 1991, “Books for Kids” is a statewide program sponsored by the Children’s Services Section of the New Jersey Library Association.
