PARSIPPANY — The Friends of the Parsippany Library is asking you to clean out your closets to support their upcoming Prom Dress Sale. 

Held Thursday, April 5 through Sunday, April 8 at the Main Library, the event will allow area young women to feel beautiful and confident through access to affordable prom dresses (priced at $15.00 each).   

Teens will also benefit by the Friends of the Parsippany Library donating all proceeds to the library’s teen programming and collections to supplement the library’s operating budget.  

The Parsippany library provides the town’s diverse population of teenagers with valuable resources through its collections as well as technology-related classes, art sessions, and workshops.  The teen room is also a safe haven; Teen Central is often full of students studying or simply spending time with their peers.  The Teen Advisory Board (TAB) also offers this age group a leadership opportunity.  TAB members help plan teen programming, develop the teen collection and promote teen library use.  

Now through March 31, new or gently used formal dresses that are appropriate for the prom are being collected at the Main Library location at 449 Halsey Road.  They can be dropped off during the library’s normal hours of operation.

Sponsorships and donations of prom-related goods and services such as florists, beauty salons, and photographers are also being sought.
