How can I make a donation to support this event and the Friends of the Library?

 

The Fall Festival and Book Sale promises to be a great opportunity for our community to come together to celebrate the start of autumn. While admission is entirely free for spectators, this event is nevertheless our primary fundraiser for 2022.  Funds raised by the Friends of the Library support such programs as our library’s Museum Pass Lending Program, WiFi Hotspot Lending Initiative, Shakespeare in the Park, Summer Reading for Children and Teens, Independent Film Discussion Series, Lunar New Year Celebrations and other multicultural celebrations, as well as annual scholarships for local students. In short, they enable our organization to continue to promote our library as Secaucus’ informational, cultural and educational hub.
