Become a Friend of the Library!
Government funding pays only a portion of the Library's operating expenses.
Membership with the Friends of the Library group is a great way to support NYPL's free and vital services including literacy training, internet access and job search resources.
Plus, Friends receive special benefits such as discounted LIVE tickets, invitations to member events, and the satisfaction of belonging to group of generous and compassionate New Yorkers.
You may also make a contribution over the phone by calling 212-930-0653.
