Advocacy

Municipal funding of the Montclair Public Library is once again under threat. We need our allies to raise their voices in support of robust funding so that library hours, staffing, facilities, and programming can return to the levels that our community needs and deserves.

We are calling on you to take action and raise questions so that there is public dialogue about the value and importance of the library.

Update November 16, 2021: Thank you for making your voices heard! At last night’s meeting of the Montclair Town Council, there was a lengthy discussion regarding library funding, the faulty audit, and the proposed agreement put forth by the Township. It was determined that further negotiations and scrutiny were needed before the agreement could pass, and the vote was tabled. You can view the full Council meeting, including public comment, here.
