About Us

The Friends of the Red Bank Public Library was established in 2009 by a small, dedicated group of library lovers. Members share a belief in the important role our library plays in the life of the entire community. 

If you are interested in joining our group, fill out the form on the back of our Membership Brochure and give it to a library staff member at the Circulation Desk. Memberships start at $15 per year.

INTRODUCING THE FOUNDATION FOR THE RED BANK PUBLIC LIBRARY

A great library is the cornerstone of a vibrant community. Today, however, a great library is not possible through public funding alone. Current levels of municipal funding and state aid are insufficient to sustain a dynamic public library in Red Bank. In 2013, concerned members of the Library Board of Trustees and the community came together to form the Foundation for the Red Bank Public Library to raise funds to support the long-term fiscal health of the Library and promote awareness of all the Library has to offer.

We believe that a thriving library benefits local businesses as well as all residents by making Red Bank a desirable place to live and work.

Donating to the Foundation is a way to show your support and help us build a strong and relevant library in Red Bank.

“An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest." - Benjamin Franklin
