The Friends of New Brunswick Free Public Library encourage library awareness, promote use of the library, and encourage reading and life-long learning. They publicize library activities, enrich the presentations of the library, donate equipment, and raise funds. Become a Friend, and with your annual membership enable the library to share with the community the wealth of knowledge in a speaker or a book.

Friends of the Library Events


Book Club

The book club meets one Monday per month (except during the summer) at 1:30 p.m. in the Henry Guest House, next to the library. (Please ask inside the library if you have questions about the location.) The only requirements are to have read the book and be willing to discuss it. The library will often have copies of the Book Club book set aside for the upcoming discussion: just ask at the front desk.

Please download a copy of the Friends' Book Club Schedule for 2019-2020 here. ~As of March 14, 2020, the library is closed until further notice. Please check back for updates.


Book Sale

The Friends sell a wide array of items at incredibly low prices at their Book Sale, in order to raise money to benefit the library. Only cash and checks are accepted. The next Book Sale has been postponed until October 2020. Please check back for exact dates.
