Friends of NPML

The Friends of NPML is a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise funds and awareness as well as advocate for the library.  The Friends make possible much of the library's programming.  The Friends' sponsorship includes the Sunday Concert Series, the Museum Pass program, movie licenses which allow the library to show current movies, and much of the special events programming.  They also produce the Annual Craft Fair, curate a wonderful gallery space in the library and provide funds for other improvements to the library.

You may become a Friend by making a contribution in one of 3 ways:

  1. use the the printable Donation Page
  2. mail your donation directly to the Friends of the New Providence Library, 377 Elkwood Ave., New Providence, NJ 07974
  3. donate online with your existing Community Pass account (you can create a new account or use one from out of town, too)

In addition, when you shop the Friends' AmazonSmile page, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the Friends of the New Providence Memorial Library.

The Executive Board is always looking for volunteers.  For more information, send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
