The Friends of the Rahway Public Library

The Friends of the Rahway Public Library is a volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides fundraising and support to the library. Since 2010, we have raised thousands of dollars through activities including annual book sales, fundraising dinners, scavenger hunts, and other fun activities. These events have helped bring the community together and focused attention on the library as an important community hub.


The funds raised have helped support children’s activities and educational programs, purchased additional books for lending, and provided necessary items not covered in the ordinary budget. Won’t you help support our efforts and join the Friends of the Rahway Public Library? Simply complete the form found here, enclose your payment (cash or check), and return it to the Rahway Public Library in person or by mail.


Thank you for your support!

Flocking

Folks are used to seeing robins and other birds in the warmer weather in our area. This year, they may also see flocks of pink flamingos! Don’t be surprised—as part of our fundraising efforts, the Friends are offering to surprise a fun-loving friend of your choosing with a yard full of flamingos. Just say the word, provide the donation, and the flock will alight. These flamingos will roost on the lawn for twenty-four to forty-eight hours, when they will mysteriously migrate elsewhere.

The flocking is done in good spirits and is not meant to be mean in any manner. A letter accompanies our feathered friends explaining their arrival, but will not divulge who is responsible. Of course, their removal is done at no charge.

If you would like to surprise one of your friends, we ask for a donation of $25, assuming the flocking is in Rahway. Flockings requested for locations outside of Rahway are priced on a case-by-case scenario.

Our lips are not sealed, however; the culprit can be revealed for a minimum donation of $10.
