2018 Adult Reading Challenge

Back by popular demand, get ready to step outside your reading confort zone and join our: 

The rules are simple:

  • During each month, read a book that fits the chosen challenge category. Recommendation lists are available both online and in print at either branch. 
  • After finishing a book, submit an Adult Reading Challenge entry form found at our Information Desks. Only patrons 18+ can fill out contest entries. 
  • Each completed form will enter you into our Monthly Prize Drawing! Read as much as you can -- there's no limit to monthly entries!  
  • If you complete any of our monthly challenges during the year, you are automatically entered into our GRAND PRIZE DRAWING. To win the Grand Prize, just attend at our Adult Reading Challenge End of the Year Celebration! One grand prize entry per patron.  
  • Feel free to ask a Librarian for monthly suggestions!

Read with a purpose. And for prizes. Remember -- we are here to help if you'd like suggestions!

Our Museum Pass Program has expanded!

Thank you Friends of Piscataway Library!

As many of you know, we have had FREE museum passes to Grounds for Sculpture, Morris Museum, and Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum Complex for the past year. Thanks to the further generosity of our Friends of the Library organization, we now can offer a pass to the Garden State Discovery Museum as well! This pass provides free admission to 6 people. For more information, look at "Museum Passes" under the Adult Services tab on our website. 

Your library card, plus a valid government-issued ID that shows a birthday (driver's license, passport), must be presented when checking out.

Museum passes are available on a first-come, first-serve basis at the User Services Desk at Kennedy Library. Passes may be checked out for 4 days and may not be renewed.

We are happy to be able to offer you these passes so that you and your family and friends can enjoy an enriching experience.
