Milestones Matter: 35 or 350!

September/October 2014

This year BCCLS libraries are celebrating two big birthdays!  BCCLS is celebrating 35 years of connecting libraries, communities, and so much more. But did you know that the State of New Jersey is also celebrating a milestone? New Jersey is 350 years old. That is a lot of candles!

Members of the BCCLS Public Relations Committee have compiled a list of favorite books to celebrate our great state – everything from Jersey’s iconic diners to our history starting with our early beginning as a colony. While reading about New Jersey, don’t forget to peruse your library’s local history collection and learn about the history of your town.
