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. Their community partners are the East Brunswick Human Relations Council, East Brunswick Women’s Club, Milltown Public Library, the Monroe Township Public Library, and the Spotswood Public Library. Additional funding is provided by the East Brunswick Friends of the Library.
