Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Mount Laurel Library is a 501(c)(3) non-profit all volunteer organization, dedicated to supporting the activities and mission of the Mount Laurel Library.  The Friends provide financial support primarily through membership dues,  used book and media sales, and other fundraising events.

Volunteer for the Friends of ML Library.  We need your help! 

The Library has become a community destination and continues to grow exponentially.  The Library’s mission is to inform, enrich, connect, and transform our community.  The purpose of The Friends is to maintain an association of individuals interested in fostering advocacy for The Library: in focusing public attention on library services, facilities and needs; and in raising funds for the Library beyond the scope of township funding.  The Friends is a nonprofit organization.
