2019 was a good year for the Friends and we were able to give the library $18,500, the most we have ever given in our history. Thank you to all our members and supporters of our fundraisers for making this happen. Without you it would not have been possible.
PLEASE NOTE: as of January 1, 2020, Grounds for Sculpture is no longer offering the passes we purchased for our members to use for free. The Friends have, however, added a few more museums to the list of museums we already offer. They are: the Newark Museum, the Frick Museum in NYC, the Brooklyn Botanical Garden and the New York Historical Society. Check out what your library membership can offer you at each of these museums here. Due to lack of participation, we have stopped offering the Morristown Museum. Please let us know if you have any other Museum suggestions that you would like us to consider.
Check out all the great programs that the Friends are funding in the new quarterly newsletter (January, February and March, 2020) that have been sponsored by Metuchen Savings Bank. Click here for the flyer.
FOTML needs your support and a way to do that is to join the Friends. You can join at the library or through the "Donate" button at the bottom of this page. Your membership is greatly appreciated.

What's Happening at the Gallery.........
Quilts, quilts, and more quilts! The Gallery at the Metuchen Library
proudly presents the work of
Metuchen quilter, Jennifer Strauser,
January 2 through March 30. Ms. Strauser, whose quilted Adirondack chair was part of Metuchen’s public art project last summer, is a professional quilter who has been quilting for 18 years. A Meet-the- Artist reception will be held in the gallery on Saturday, January 25, from 2 to 4 pm. Don’t visit just once; the artist plans to switch out her quilts over the three-month period.
