Are you a current or former Piscataway resident?  If so, the library needs your input! Help us update our local history collection by telling us about what it was like to be in Piscataway during historic times such as the September 11th attacks, social justice demonstrations, the Covid-19 pandemic, and other events since 1990.

Selected contributions will be published in a book that will be available in the library for checkout to the public.  Submissions should be in English and 1,000 words or less.  

No identifying information will be shared with the public without express permission of the contributor.  Authors may choose to remain anonymous.

There are many ways to submit your contribution!

  1. Use the form below.
  2. Email us at
  3. Drop off a printed copy at either Piscataway Public Library branch when we are open to the public again.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at
