On Saturday December 8th, 2001 a collection of nearly 1000 books and magazines about Bruce Springsteen and his musical career was officially presented to Robert Stewart, the director of Asbury Park Public Library.
The main speakers were: Chris Phillips - Publisher and Editor of "Backstreets"; Robert Stewart - Director of Asbury Park Public Library; Kate Mellina - City of Asbury Park Council Member; and Kevin G. Sanders - Mayor for the City of Asbury Park.
The ceremony was a great success and special thanks go out to Robert Stewart
and the Library Staff who made everyone feel so welcome.
As Councilwoman Kate Mellina said in her
speech, the event honored Asbury Park's status as an important location in American musical history.
