The Friends have 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.
September is Library Sign Up month and it is almost over: Don't miss out on the chance to sign up for a library card. To get a card you need a picture ID (license, passport, etc.) with your address on it. If your ID doesn't have your current address you also need a document that shows your current Metuchen address, such as a lease agreement, electric bill, cable bill, etc.
Check out all the great programs that the Friends are funding in the new quarterly newsletter (October, November and December, 2019) 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.
