Since 1984, The Friends of the Parsippany Library have been committed to improving our libraries by raising funds that may be used in various ways, such as to sponsor events and programs; supplement children’s programs; and purchase books, computers, software and audio visual materials.

Funds come from book sales, revenue from “The Book Nook” (the Friends’ used book store) and various fundraisers.  The remainder of the budget is made up of annual dues paid by the membership (whether individual or corporate), donations, and grants.
