Friends of Library

Friends of the Marlboro Free Library

Established in 1969, the Friends of the Marlboro Free Library has a long tradition of supporting the Library’s mission of lifelong learning, and for promoting awareness of Library services. The Friends group raises funds for the Library by organizing and hosting raffles, special events, and book sales. These efforts have helped cover past expenses and improvements, such as a circulation desk for the children’s area, baby-changing stations for the bathrooms, holiday costumes for the public to borrow, and more!

To receive more information on becoming a member of the Friends group, please contact the Library at 845-236-7272 ext. 216, or like them on facebook!
