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, 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 month for about an hour. The big annual projects consist of two book sale fundraisers (spring and fall), and two boutique sales (jewelry and accessories before Mother's Day and holiday items in early November). There is also a fall membership drive with a yearly newsletter for the community. If you are interested in becoming a Friend, a membership form is available here
