HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - The Hasbrouck Heights Library is again teaming with Hackensack's Johnson Library to provide the necessities needed for young ladies to step out in style during prom season.
For the second year, the two libraries are working in partnership with Operation Prom and Dress Code collecting clean, gently used formal prom or evening dresses any length, style and size. They are also accepting accessories, including jewelry, bags, shawls, and clutches. They will also accept hangers, but no shoes. Donated items must be clean and should be age-appropriate for teenagers. Donations will be accepted through the end of March.
According to Kate Senedzuk, Youth Services Librarian, last year the Hasbrouck Heights Library collected 50 dresses. She said they are "hoping to collect even more this year."
Donations will be distributed to middle and high school students during Johnson Library's Prom and Cotillion Dress Giveaway on Saturday, April 18 from 12noon to 3pm.
The Hasbrouck Heights Free Public Library is located at 320 Boulevard in Hasbrouck Heights.
