Friends of the Marlboro Library

BookBarn

Weather permitting, the Book Barn is open every second and fourth Saturday of the month from May to October, 9:00am until 1:00pm. It’s located two houses north of the library on route 9W. Park in the library back parking lot and follow the path down to the red shed.

Established in 1969, the Friends of the Library create awareness and appreciation of our library services. They raise funds for the Library by organizing raffles and selling donated books from the Book Barn. If you would like to donate books, please call the library for contact information. Monies that they have raised in the past paid for such library improvements and enhancements as a circulation desk for the children’s area, baby-changing stations for library restrooms, holiday costumes for the public to borrow, outdoor plants and tubs to beautify the grounds, a color printer, a new American flag, and many, many other items. They meet once a month at the library. They are always looking for people who believe that local volunteerism makes a difference, and for people with good ideas.
