Unstoppable supports the argument that the environmental issues of today are not as insurmountable as they seem and that society can work together to build a healthier, cleaner, and smarter world.

For the second part of this program, the library will be leading a park cleanup at Heavenly Farms Park (440 Dunhams Corner Road) on Saturday, July 29 from 10 am to 4 pm. Following the cleanup, volunteers can play volleyball at the park.

The “Reading To Action” program is co-sponsored by the Friends of the East Brunswick Environmental Commission.
