Used Book Donations Help FundRotary Club of Hillsborough Foundation
 
 Beginning in April, residents can now turn their used books into a charitable donation by depositing them in the New Legacy Books bin located in the Hillsborough Township Municipal Center parking lot adjacent to the soccer fields.  New Legacy Books will collect and resell the donated books and provide a percentage of sales to The Rotary Club of Hillsborough Foundation. 
 
“This partnership with New Legacy Books is one of those rare, win/win opportunities,” commented Rich Salem, president of the Rotary Club of Hillsborough. “Families have an opportunity to clean out their bookshelves while helping to fund a variety of community service projects and charitable contributions led by Rotary.”
 
“Our Township government immediately endorsed this plan and provided a prime location for the bin,” noted Ben Rozenblat, incoming president of The Rotary Club of Hillsborough.  “The funds generated by the book donations will be used to support everything from post-secondary school scholarships to gift cards distributed to local food-insecure families by the Hillsborough Community Action Network”
 
“We are always happy to partner with the Rotary Club of Hillsborough,” noted Hillsborough Mayor and member of the Rotary Club, Shawn Lipani.  “By supporting this fundraising project, we are also supporting our town.”
 
New Legacy Books was founded as a for-profit business in New Jersey by two Monmouth University graduates who made it their mission to give back to their communities through the sale and redistribution of donated books.
 
Residents can drive up to the bin, day or night, and deposit their gently used books, including text books, novels, non-fiction, children’s books, cookbooks etc.
