The Friends of the Watchung Public Library is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to increasing awareness, and expanding the breadth and depth of the programs and services offered by our town library.  To accomplish this mission, the Friends organization relies, in large part, upon private contributions. 

Tax-deductible contributions to the Friends provide essential funding for children's programming, adult workshops and special performances.

With your support, the Friends of the Watchung Library can continue to offer outstanding programs to you and your family.  Please take this opportunity to  enrich the lives of the children and adults in our community by becoming a Friend. 

Thank you for your support!
