The Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Bridgeton Library is a non-profit organization dedicated to stimulating community interest in, and use of, the library. We believe the library is an integral part of the Bridgeton area.

What We Do

The Friends support and promote the community services of the Bridgeton Library. We hold fundraisers to supplement library programs and host a variety of outings and events. Our main goal is to encourage both financial and community support of the library and use of its services.

Why You Should Join

While there are special benefits to being a friend, everyone benefits from a great library! By joining the Friends, you can help the library expand its programs and services, making it a great cultural and educational center for the entire community.

I value the people who work at and volunteer their time at Bridgeton Library. They care about the library and it shows. The library is a safe and inviting place for my family to learn something new. The staff is always pleasant and helpful pull-quote-light
