YOUR FAMILY CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON:
DONATE FOOD: If you have a frozen turkey you'd like to donate, SHIP (Somerset Homeless Interim Program) will be collecting them from 7:30 a.m. -1 p.m. Monday 11/22 at the Curves near the library (in the Prince Rodgers Shopping Center).
The Bridgewater Library also has an ongoing collection in the lobby for non-perishable food for our Somerset County Food Banks. Please consider helping neighbors in need.
GIVE BOOKS TO CHILDREN WHO DON’T HAVE (M)ANY: Along with food for their stomachs, many children lack food for their minds -- specifically,they lack access to books of their own at home. With state cutbacks, many urban libraries are having to shorten hours and close branches, limiting children’s access to books even further. You can help by donating new (or very new-looking) books to our Books for Kids Drive. There is a collection box outside the doors of the Youth Services Room.
SEND A CARD OR PACKAGE TO A MEMBER OF THE ARMED FORCES:

Want to send your support to a soldier in harm's way, but have no idea what to send, who to send it to, or how to send it? This website shows how. (Links to the other services are here as well.)
MAKE A HOMEMADE GIFT:
Check out our new display “THANKS & GIVING: MAKE SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR SOMEONE YOU LOVE” above the children’s magazine shelves. It has lots of ideas for homemade gifts your family can make and give!
