CLARK — The Clark Public Library was one of five recipients of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities (NJCH) Book Award Collection. The collection was awarded based on a competitive grant process.

Thirty non-fiction titles were received by the library, including the winner of this year’s NJCH Book Award, “The Honor Code: How Moral Revolutions Happen” by Kwame Anthony Appiah, the Laurance S. Rockefeller University Professor of Philosophy at Princeton University. In “The Honor Code,” Appiah examines “moral revolutions” or moments when a society decides that a longstanding practice is no longer reputable.

The remaining titles represent the best of the humanities, featuring several about New Jersey, including “Protecting New Jersey’s Environment: From Caner Alley to the New Garden State” by Thomas Belton. All books are available for circulation to library cardholders.

The Clark Public Library is located at 303 Westfield Avenue. For more information, visit or call 1-732-388-5999.
