Do you love to read -- pick up a new magazine, or browse the shelves of the latest releases in fiction or non-fiction?
Do you want to support the community, think it's important to make all the resources of the Hoboken Public Library - from new bestsellers, to children's books, to research materials, to Internet access, to books-on-tape, to videos and DVDs of classic movies - the best they can be?
Do you think it's important to keep our public library's services available to everyone in the community? If so, you need to know more about the Friends!
The Friends are a group of volunteers dedicated to supporting and expanding what the Library offers to children and adults. We do this by publicizing the Library's programs and raising funds for the Library's special needs.
In past years the money we've raised has enabled the Library to purchase new books, magazine subscriptions, computer equipment, computer furniture and Yound Adult Room furniture that were beyond its regular budget. The Friends also donated the core startup collections of videos and DVDs!
The Friends sponsor a number of activities, including the Great Hoboken Spelling Challenge, Saturday story hours for toddlers, an English as a Second Language Conversation Program, book sales, and more.
