“Every year we celebrate National Library Week to recognize the great role our libraries play in East Windsor and to remind everyone of their local importance,” Mironov said. “Our libraries are wonderful treasures that have become a central focus for our community. On any given day, you will see students working on homework or helping each other with tutoring, individuals taking out books, movies and
music, and families with young children enjoying all kinds of programs throughout the

community groups and special events featuring speakers and movies throughout the
year. We thank all of the people that help promote our libraries throughout the county
and the municipality and the staff that are there day in and day out to help residents and
make visiting the library such a great pleasure.”

The proclamation states, “our public libraries safeguard the right of Americans to free access to read, learn and connect to information on all subjects and representing all points of view, serving as a cornerstone of our democracy,” and further encourages “all people to support and rediscover the wealth of resources and services available at the East Windsor Township libraries.”
