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.

The Friends of the Rahway Public Library meet every third Thursday of the month. Thank you for your support!
