Friends of the Middletown Library

The Friends of the Middletown Library donated $3,650 to the Middletown Library at their July meeting. The money will be used to fund library programs through the rest of the year and to purchase two Museum Passes. The Friends chose to sponsor a renewal of the Guggenheim Museum pass and to purchase a new pass to the Battleship NJ Museum and Memorial. About the generous donation, Library Director Kim Rinaldi said, "The Friends are a group of highly dedicated individuals who are working very hard to raise money for programming and special services such as the museum passes. The Middletown community is lucky to have such a strong organization supporting and advocating for their library." The Friends meet monthly in the library's Community Room. Information about joining the Friends can be found on the Middletown Library's website at www.mtpl.org.
