Holiday gift ideas at the Secaucus Public Library
Library Director Jenifer May has suggestions for holiday gift-giving that are available right in the Secaucus Public Library. Individuals can purchase a book in a loved one’s name and include a membership in the Friends of the Secaucus Public Library. Books purchased by the library in individuals’ names are living tributes. A bookplate is inserted inside the front cover so each patron that checks out that book will see it was donated in someone’s name. When purchasing books, you can specify the genre and whether you want it to be a children’s book or an adult’s mystery novel. The choices are many and they are yours to make.
Individual membership is $10 or $5 for senior citizens or students, $20 for families, or $150 for a Lifetime Membership. For more information, contact May at: (201) 330-2083 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
