The Northwest Jersey Assn of the Deaf, Inc (NWJAD) and the Higgs Family Foundation have donated the ASL Access Video Collection of 200 videos to our library. The Clifford R. Rowley ASL Video Collection, now held in only two other public libraries in the country, includes children’s stories, original ASL poetry, comedy, drama, translations of classic literature, biographies and ASL instruction films. The collection honors Cliff Rowley for his strong leadership and volunteer work in establishing programs and services for the deaf.
