Volunteer Hours for
Young Adult Book Reviews

You asked, we listened. For those in need of more community service hours, you now have another option! Here’s how it works:

  • You read a book at least 100 pages in length.
  • You fill out the form we provide in the library, which includes information about the book, and a 1.5-page review (I.e., Half of the front and the entire back of the page) of the book. 
  • Turn the form in--with a week for us to process your entry--we can we give you one hour of community service for every 100 pages read. So if you read a 374-page book, you get three hours.

That’s it. It’s easy! 
Programs offered by the Children's Department are intended for children in grades K - 7 with an accompanying adult for children under 9 years. Registration is required for Woodbridge township residents beginning June 17.  Register online , in-person at our Township libraies or call 732-726-7072, ext. 7210.   Programs and prizes for he Summer Reading Program are funded by the Friends of the Library.
