About Us

The Montclair Public Library Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that develops philanthropic support for the Montclair Public Library. Established in 2002, the Foundation strives to increase funding for Library programs, collection enhancement, staff development, special projects and other critical needs that exceed municipal funding. Through the development of new financial resources, the Foundation seeks to ensure that the Library meets the needs of its diverse community and maintains its stature as one of the foremost libraries in the State of New Jersey.

The Montclair Public Library Foundation supports:

• Collection Development

• Cultural and Literacy Programs

• Technological Advancements

• Summer Reading Programs for Children

• Special Projects

In recent years, the Foundation has funded the Children’s Summer Reading Club Program, professional development for Library staff, and the Library’s participation in the Bergen County Cooperative Library System (BCCLS). BCCLS provides residents with access to the holdings of 77 public libraries in Bergen, Essex, Hudson and Passaic counties. The Foundation funded the purchase of a mini-bookmobile, expanded hotspot and laptop lending, and the MuseumPass program for libraries.
