The Next Chapter Book Club for New Jersey Libraries

This project funded and supported six New Jersey libraries in setting up their own Next Chapter Book Clubs for adults and teens with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Scotch Plains Public Library (using their own Club as a model) won a contract award from LibraryLinkNJ to support setup, recruitment, training and publicity of additional Clubs, which were launched in the Fall 2014. A final report with project descriptions is now available on the LLNJ website. The group is happy to share with and mentor any libraries interested in starting their own Club. Our thanks to team at the Scotch Plains Public Library for their inspiration and hard work on this project, and to the staffs of the participating member libraries:

  • Camden County Library System
  • Cherry Hill Public Library
  • Monmouth County Library, Eastern Branch
  • Middletown Public Library
  • Wayne Public Library
  • Woodbridge Public Library
