'Big Book Drive' Benefits Paterson Library Patrons

About 800 books were delivered from Ridgewood.

The Ridgewood Public Library has teamed up with authors, the region's daily newspaper and other bibliophiles to serenade Paterson library users with thousands of books.

Ridgewood best-selling author Harlan Coben was among those who donated books for the Big Book Drive, a three-week effort created by the Paterson Public Library and The Record and The Herald News newspapers.

Almost 800 books were dropped off in Ridgewood, northjersey.com reported Friday. The books are destined for Paterson's new library, scheduled to open in April.

Please note the RIDGEWOOD LIBRARY IS NO LONGER COLLECTING BOOKS. Due to the monumental generosity of our patrons, we collected 250 boxes of books for the Paterson Drive. Please visit the Allendale or Fair Lawn libraries and other drop-off locations listed in the Bergen Record. Thanks to all for a great success! Roberta Panjwani, Supervising Librarian
