Supporting Our Library
The Montclair Public Library Foundation remains committed to its mission of raising funds to support our community library–a vital resource to educate, entertain, and enrich. During this pandemic the dedicated library staff continue to work remotely and we are proud to have underwritten expanded access to digital resources and platforms.
We continue to accept donations to continue our support of the library. If your circumstances allow, we encourage you to do so and thank you for your generosity.
