Helping Our Community Speed Towards Excellence, Innovation and Sustained Growth
For many, libraries are fondly recalled as an awesome place full of books and with a scent of old paper. The word library conjures a past analog world that doesn’t quite fit the modern broadband Internet-connected community.
Though warm and comforting, the nostalgic view is limiting as Plainsboro Library is so much more. Our library circulates analog and electronic materials, is an information hub, a meeting and a gathering place, a media creation center and a maker space.
The Foundation provides critical support to the Plainsboro Public Library by sponsoring programs free of charge to children, teens, and adults. Public funding provides a strong financial base. But private donations allow the Library to soar above the ordinary by offering superior services and events. Your generous contributions allow the Library to invest in:
- Future Generations- Access to books and early literacy classes are huge tailwinds! We offer over 250 early literacy classes. Our Summer Reading program keeps kids and teens reading, encouraging curiosity by emboldening them to explore new worlds, literally and figuratively!
- Arts- The Gallery exhibits works by outstanding local and regional artists. Residents get the opportunity to enjoy art in real time and talk with artists at monthly art receptions. The Library's annual open-air arts festival features artists in residence events and art workshops.
- Sciences- Our award-winning Science Center supports a year-round program of education, invention, and competition. We nurture kid’s natural capacities for inquiry and experimentation and integrate science literacy into the fabric of everyday life.
- Technology- The Library provides up-to-date hardware and software, a strong Wi-Fi network, and robust digital collections. We offer residents tech help and hold hands-on tech workshops throughout the year.
Sustainers Circle: Our generous members of our Sustainers Circle provide ongoing support to the Foundation. Sustainers Circle members give monthly gifts, providing a dependable funding source and reducing fundraising costs so more of their contribution goes directly to Library programs. Please join them today to inspire new readers, help students succeed, and invest in lifelong learning!
And thank you all for your generous support which helps provide the tailwinds to reach our destination: a community that speeds towards excellence, innovation and sustained growth.
