The purpose of the Friends of the Morristown & Morris Township Library shall be to further public interest in and greater use of the Library and its facilities. This shall be done by raising funds for Library needs not included in the budget and by sponsoring special programs." [From the Friends' Constitution]
The Friends are the library's hands-on volunteers. They get dusty hauling and sorting used books for the sales that bring the library more than $20,000 a year, provide a kind of book recycling service for the community, and offer shoppers inexpensive books for their personal libraries. The Friends plan lectures and other programs for the community, publish the quarterly Library News, prepare and serve an annual luncheon for library staff and volunteers and they stand ready to help with special events, purchases, projects or emergencies.
Anyone may join the Friends by paying the annual dues (15.00 dollars for an individual) that help support the Library.
To contact the Friends please email Norma Mortimer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Friends publish a quarterly newsletter called Library News. You can read the current newsletter by clicking on the link below:
Tuesdays 10 AM - 2 PM (No sales on the last two Tuesdays of December)
And most 1st and 3rd Saturdays of months from September - June
10 AM - 2 PM
Please feel free to call the library at 973-538-6161 to verify book sale dates and times.
The Friends of the Library’s used book sales have resumed in their newly restored bookroom on the lower level of the original 1917 wing of the library.
Used book sales are a significant fundraiser for the Friends. They also provide an opportunity for individuals to find new homes for books and to build personal libraries at affordable prices. All proceeds support the Library.
All sales will take place in the library at 1 Miller Rd. Morristown, NJ. Click here for directions.
Bringing us books? Please observe these guidelines:
Please do not donate:
These books will not sell and the Friends must spend money to recycle them. By not bringing them you help us put our money to better use for the benefit of the library.
