The Smartest Card
This September, Piscataway Public Library launched an extended campaign to secure a library card for every first grade student in the Township of Piscataway. To achieve this, the Library is partnering with Piscataway Schools, including the four elementary schools that serve our 500+ first grade students.
Over the upcoming school year, the Library’s Children’s Services department will be offering programs and activities to the first, second, and third graders in these schools during the students’ library period. Programs will include story times, a puppet show, book bingo, book talking and other literacy and book-related games.
Letters will also be sent home with all first grade students this month along with an application for a Piscataway Public Library card to be filled out and returned. The User Services departments will process the students’ completed applications and create library cards to then be distributed at school.
Every first grade student that registers for a new library card will also receive a sticker to commemorate this special occasion! Get the smartest card, your library card, today!
There is much to discover about Piscataway's rich history, and the library's website is a great place to start! With just one click, you can explore historic photos, family histories, and high school yearbooks, plus browse through two of Piscataway Library's oral history projects, "I Remember Piscataway" and the 2011 Veteran project. You can also freely search (by keyword) local historical newspapers through our digital archive of the Piscataway-Dunellen Review and Chronicle. Coverage is continuous from 1964 to 2006, and all files are scans of the entire issue of the newspaper.
