Author Alerts

The East Brunswick Public Library has recently partnered with EngagedPatrons to provide you with a new service, Author Alerts. This service will allow you to be notified via email or text message as soon as new titles or offerings from your favorite authors are added to the library catalog! Please note that as a result, you will also be notified when any titles have been added to the library catalog, but are not yet available (pre-release notification).
