SOUTH ORANGE, NJ — The VolunTEEN Program of the South Orange Public Library was named the November 2020 Villager of the Month at last night's South Orange Board of Trustees meeting.

"This is a great program, and it's going to be better and better as the years go on," said Trustee Karen Hilton. The program is now in its eleventh year.

"It's a testament to what the library has to offer," added Village President Sheena Collum.
