New Yorkers rely on the Library for so many essential things. They come from every corner of the city to check out books, conduct world-class research, learn English as a second language, power their job search, get afterschool homework help, and more.

Unfortunately, the government only pays for a portion of these crucial services. That’s where you come in.

Monthly donors provide reliable support that helps provide books, classes, and other essential services all year round.

You can cancel at any time by contacting the Friends Office.

You may also make a contribution over the phone by calling 212-930-0653.
