Friends of the Newark Free Library
Join the Legacy of Reading Society
This Society recognizes friends who have included the Friends of the Newark Free Library in their estate plans. Generally, these planned gifts are unrestricted and spent at the direction of the library director and the Friends Board on library priorities.
To join, simply email the Friends and inform us that you have
• Named the Friends of the Newark Free Library as a beneficiary in your will, living trust or estate plan or
• Named the Friends of the Newark Free Library as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, other financial asset, or insurance policy.

Legacy of Reading Society members will have their names displayed on a plaque in the library. They will also receive the same benefits as annual members of the Friends—a newsletter subscription and invitation to the annual brunch and performance event.
If the Newark Free Library has been important to you, consider making a planned gift to help the library play a meaningful role in the lives of future generations of Newark residents.

Donate gently used children's books
Gently used children?s books donated by Newark Free Library patrons repeatedly overflow the attractively decorated milk crate near the book check-out counter.
The Child Development Center at DelTech, Head Start branches, Bear YMCA reading program, and Hudson Center, Newark, are among the recipients of over one thousand children?s books distributed. The importance of getting books into children?s hands cannot be overstated.
