The Friends of the Bernards Township Library is a non-profit organization made up of volunteers dedicated to supporting and promoting the Library.

Thanks to support of donors like you, The Friends of the Bernards Township LIbrary have helped make our Library a special place for all who visit. Your donations have allowed us to provide new and exciting programs for adults, teens, and children, as well as cutting-edge technology and important resources including:

  • Hundreds of hardcover books, CDs, DVDs, and audio books
  • The ever-popular children's summer reading program
  • Adult programs focusing on film, art, opera, and stimulating lectures
  • An array of music, theater, education and craft programs for children and teens
  • Presentation technology to help educate and enhance the lives of our patrons

In 2019 we continue to support video content, through hoopla and kanopy.  Instantly borrow digital movies, music, eBooks, eAudiobooks and more, 24/7 with your library card and a smart device.
