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.

To become a Member of the Friends, or simply make a donation, fill out the Friends brochure and then mail it or bring it in to the library.
