Newark Public Library will obtain Philip Roth's book collection

Leala Arnold

King, N. (2015) Is author Philip Roth’s book collection what the Newark Public Library needs?

This is an interview discussing the donation of Roth’s collection of books to the Newark Public Library after his death.  The board hopes that the collection will make the library a “literary destination”.

I think it's a good idea to add and focus on a collection that can possibly bring in more people into the library, and may also lead to more grant possibilities in the future.
