The East Brunswick Public Library is a recipient of the Women's Suffrage & Beyond Program Award from the New Jersey Council for the Humanities. This award supports work to commemorate and interrogate the passage of the 19th Amendment granting women’s suffrage in 1920 and its legacy one hundred years later. Our community partners are the East Brunswick Human Relations Council, East Brunswick Woman's Club, Milltown Public Library, the Monroe Public Library, Piscataway Public Library, South River Public Library, and the Spotswood Public Library. Additional funding is provided by the East Brunswick Friends of the Library.
EBPL will hold 3 programs in Winter & Spring 2021 as part of their, "Women and the Right to Vote: Then and Now."
