Grants for public programs to highlight the 350th anniversary of the State of New Jersey.

In cooperation with the New Jersey State Library, the New Jersey Center for the Book sponsored a 2014 grant initiative to help public libraries support the yearlong statewide celebration of the 350th anniversary of the founding of the State of New Jersey. The grant program offered public libraries the opportunity to apply for $500 grants to enable them to provide free programs to the public celebrating 350 years of the State of NJ. The twelve winning grant libraries were honored in October 2014 at an event held at the Grounds for Sculpture, with whom the NJCB partnered for this program.
