The Center has a very extensive collection of books for children and youth that have been donated by Basking Ridge Presbyterian Church, Lamington Presbyterian Church, Central Presbyterian Church members and others. A Lamington youth set up a computerized catalogue and checkout system as her Gold Star project for Girl Scouts. Pingry and Basking Ridge youth assembled the bookcases and helped catalogue the collection. A Bible study group at Basking Ridge sponsored a book drive to acquire culturally appropriate books. Over 100 new books were donated by church members.
Sadly, Hurricane Ida flooded the library resulting in the loss of almost all of the donated books and all of the Library shelves. We will be seeking new donations to rebuild the collection.
