EAST WINDSOR TOWNSHIP.  Mayor Janice S. Mironov proclaimed National Library Week April 9 to 15, with the theme Libraries Transformand recognized the important role of the two East Windsor branches, Hickory Corner and Twin Rivers, of the Mercer County Library system.  Mayor Mironov presented the Proclamation, along with Barnes and Noble gift certificates donated by Shiseido America, to Sharon Galbraith Ryder, Branch Manager of the Hickory Corner Library and Jeanne Murray, Branch Manager of the Twin Rivers Library branch, along with East Windsor Township Mercer County Library Commission Representative Phyllis Anker.

 Mayor Mironov stated, “the importance of our libraries has actually grown from what it used to be into the high-tech era so you can now borrow books and music and movies and magazines without going to the library through the various apps provided.  At the same time, the libraries remain real buildings and vibrant focal points in East Windsor hosting many programs and speakers as well as a meeting place for organizations and housing an abundance of resources and tools for everyone from toddlers to young students to senior citizens.”

 The Mayoral Proclamation issued by Mayor Mironov 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.”  The Proclamation continues, “Librarians provide the essential guidance and support needed by children, teenagers and adults alike in their search for knowledge and information, as well as their pursuit of avocational and leisure interests.”
