On June 24, 2015, the Friends of the Red Bank Public Library hosted a Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon in the Eisner Room and Terrace at the library. Members of the library staff and board of trustees also attended this annual event, which celebrates and recognizes the generosity and dedication of all the Red Bank Public Library Volunteers.

Sue Goldberg: Winner of the Friends 2015 "Volunteer of the Year" Award
Sue Goldberg has been volunteering for the Library since November 2011 and has been instrumental in helping with so many things we do and have done at the Library. As many volunteers, Sue, a retired teacher and volunteer also for the Bronx Zoo, started at the RBPL by learning how to page and read our shelves. When we held our 75th party for the Library, Sue spent endless hours here helping to prepare the exhibits for our celebration. In 2013, Sue took over putting our monthly displays together and helping with book displays. She started scanning the newspapers to collect items that were noteworthy about the Library and collecting things happening in the community. She has been a major help in the NJ History Room. Sue Goldberg is a dedicated volunteer whose attention to details has made our Library a better place for both patrons and staff. We are lucky to have her and all our committed volunteers who work so hard – without whom we could never achieve all the things that we do.
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.
