School Supplies Drive: Jan 18 – Jan 23

MLK Day of Service 2016

Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.

The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President’s national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.

Literacy is one of the most important skills needed to succeed in our society. Regardless of where you live, access to books or the materials needed to learn is a challenge for some children. Providing access to books and school supplies for under served children helps to reduce a major barrier to learning.

To honor Dr. King’s legacy, the Friends of PFPL will sponsor a multi-day school supplies drive. Please bring your donation of new school supplies (grades K – 12) to Phillipsburg Free Public Library from Mon Jan 18 to Sat Jan 23. Your donations will benefit the families and children of Family Promise of Warren County

A library card is one of the most important school supplies a student can have. A teen-friendly environment at the library encourages teens to become lifelong learners and prepares them to become tomorrow’s community leaders. The Children’s department offers several free programs and activities. Computers are available for children to do homework or play educational games on the Early Literacy Stations. Sign up for a library card for your child today!. 

If you would like to volunteer or share your skills and talents to help Phillipsburg Free Public Library, feel free to come to one of our monthly meetings held every 2nd Thursday @ 7:00PM in the Library or email us info@FPFPL.org or call 908-454-3712

Phillipsburg Free Public Library is located in the municipal complex at 
200 Broubalow Way, Phillipsburg NJ  08865 Map and Directions
