Boredom Busters

If you’re looking for an educational activity to enjoy while you are visiting the library, try a Boredom Buster! Each bag has a unique activity to challenge your mind such as puzzles, Hot Dots, minute to win it games, and more. Complete the activity, return the bag to the rack and get a sticker from the youth desk.

Send a Letter

Send a letter to your favorite storybook character and they may even write back. When you have written your letter, or drawn a picture, put it in the blue mailbox under the bulletin board. With a little bit of magic, the next time you visit the library you may see your letter and a response displayed on our bulletin boards! (Letters will be displayed until Oct. 1. If you’d like to take home your letter and response you can collect them at that time.) 

Take-Home CD Decoration

Take-home CD decoration kit to make a neat hanging ornament for your space at home! Each kit contains 2 CDs, a string for hanging, and gems and sequins for decorating. 

About the Branch

After being serviced by a bookmobile for a few years, the first West Windsor Branch opened in the former Christian Education Building of the Dutch Neck Church in 1966. A new, expanded Branch opened in the municipal center in November 1983. However, rapid population growth and corresponding increase in library use quickly rendered that building inadequate and in August 1997, the Branch moved to its current 23,000 square foot building. The bright and inviting new library is equipped with state of the art technology and comfortable furnishings to support research, quiet study and children’s activities.

Distinctive Aspects of the Collection

In keeping with our mission to provide materials and services that satisfy the educational, informational, recreational and cultural needs of our diverse community, our Children’s Department, brightened by Ilya Spirin’s colorful “Rain Forest Mural”, houses the largest juvenile book collection in the system, and our International Children’s Book Collection, which encompasses 16 languages. The Chinese Language Collection has nearly 3000 books; the Branch subscribes to several Chinese and Indian newspapers and periodicals, and our rapidly expanding DVD collection includes hundreds of Hindi and Chinese films.

Displays

Gallery space can be reserved for one month at a time for art exhibits or displays; three display cases (locked) can be reserved-also monthly-to display collectibles. (For further information, please contact the Branch manager.)
