About the Friends of the Mountainside Public Library

 

The Friends of the Mountainside Public Library are the primary fundraisers of the Library. They are volunteers who work hard to raise money in support of library programs as well as other library needs. The Friends sponsor all adult and children’s programs, the monthly Saturday Musical Getaways concert series, and the children’s summer reading programs. The Friends also support the maintenance of the Library’s website and the Early Literacy computers for children. Meetings are typically held at the library once every six weeks for about an hour. The big annual projects consist of two book sale fundraisers (one in the spring and one in the fall), and the fall membership drive with a yearly newsletter for the community. If you are interested in becoming a Friend, membership forms are available at the Library Circulation desk.

Please consider joining the Friends to help support and enhance library services.
