Libraries Are The Heart Of Any Community

Dear Neighbor,

For over sixty years since its founding, our Franklin Lakes Library enriches, enlightens, educates, and empowers our community.  The library provides free access to information, ideas and knowledge through books, a wide range of programs, and various cultural enriching resources. 

On behalf of The Friends of the Franklin Lakes Library, we ask that you please donate to our 2018 Membership Drive.

The Friends allocates all donated funds towards programs and resources for our residents, including:

  • Full access to books, computers, music, movies, and streaming video
  • Children’s programs for story time, reading clubs, crafts, sing-alongs, and movement classes
  • Teen programs for homework help, art, games, movies, and computers
  • Adult and Senior programs for concerts, movies, computer and social media skills, learning languages, financial seminars, and historical lectures

Our library depends on the generosity and loyalty of its patrons and supporters to continue to provide these programs.  Thank you for your kind support
