Gifts to our annual appeal are the simplest, most direct means of support for the Foundation. The donor is entitled to an income tax deduction of the entire amount of the gift, providing deductions are itemized and do not exceed certain limits. Such unrestricted gifts allow the library to address its most pressing needs.
Libraries are of great importance to individuals and they are fundamental to strong communities. They are the keepers of our stories and the source of information for everyone. In an era when education is essential, they help ensure equality of access. The Montclair Public Library makes books, audio books, movies, and computers available to every member of our community. Our library makes information available at everyone’s fingertips either in one of our two beautiful buildings or via the Internet. Our library also provides an exceptional staff to keep the library vital.
