Members at Large: Estelle Burke
Welcome to our Jackson Friends of the Library web site! The Jackson Friends are happy to enjoy a beautiful building that replaced the old facility about twelve years ago. So now that we have this wonderful facility we feel even more strongly about our purpose, which is to create public interest in the library and make people aware of all the wonderful resources, services and needs of the library.
During the past years we have supported many programs, purchased needed equipment and made aesthetic contributions. Each year we hold a book sale in the spring that has been very successful and has enabled us to help with the development of the new library. The Ocean County Library system has developed new and exciting goals to keep up with the new technologies available to the public so it may serve the needs of the growing community. The Friends are excited to be part of helping to reach these goals.
We invite new members to join all year long. Consider attending our next monthly meeting. We meet in the Meeting Room of the Jackson Library on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm. We look forward to welcoming you.
