Friends of the library special events


friends of the north brunswick library

The Friends of the North Brunswick Library are a nonprofit group whose members support the library by:

  • Promoting public awareness and support of the library
  • Advocating for library funding and pro-library legislation
  • Donating materials and equipment
  • Providing funding for the rental book and DVD collections; all library programming for children, teens and adults; for the Museum Pass Program; for eBook and eReader lending
  • Sponsoring special programs
  • Encouraging gifts and bequests from the community

The Friends raise funds through the support of annual membership dues, the popular “Eat Out” program and holding an annual used book sale.  The sale is always held the first weekend in May.  

Thank you for supporting the Friends of the North Brunswick Library, with your help we raised over $13,000 in 2017.

 Don't forget to mark your calendar for next year’s sale which will be held on May 4, 5 and 6th, 2018.
