Friends of the Library

Visit the Website

Established in 1984, the Friends of the Library is a volunteer, 501C3 organization. Their membership consists of local residents committed to enhancing library services.  The Friends hold fundraising events throughout the year.  All funds raised in our summer fundraising events, Macy’s “Shop for a Cause” day goes specifically towards the Summer Reading Club.  A significant percentage of the Friends income comes from membership dues and Book Nook sales, our book store. By becoming a member of the Friends, you receive a copy of the Friends bi-annual newsletter and invitations to special functions.  You can become active in this organization noting it on your application form.  The Friends are constantly looking for new members.  Whether you are new to the area or have been a Parsippany resident for many years or a lifetime we can use your help.  If you can commit to helping with various fundraising projects, usually 2-3 hours per event or have a love for the library, please consider becoming a member of the Friends.
