Library Wins Book Award Collection

Mayor Mark A. Smith announced that the Free Public Library of Bayonne has been awarded the twenty-fifth annual New Jersey Council for the Humanities Book Award Collection. The Bayonne library is just one of five institutions that won the book award collection, which consists of twenty-four humanities volumes nominated by publishers across the United States.
Mayor Smith said, “The people of Bayonne should be proud that our library has won this prestigious book collection. Library patrons can look forward to reading two dozen high-quality books from the fields of history, biography, architecture, music, literature, poetry, and show business.” Library Director Sneh Bains said, “I would like to thank the New Jersey Council for the Humanities for awarding our library with this collection of books. We look forward to making the works of so many gifted authors available to the reading public.”
The New Jersey Council of the Humanities (NJCH) will recognize the Bayonne library and other recipients at the organization’s annual awards event, which will take place on October 30 in New Brunswick.
The NJCH is a non-profit organization funded primarily by the National Endowment for the Humanities, with additional support from private and corporate funders.
