Our Situation

The Elmer Library Association does not have a dedicated source of revenue for the operational expenses of the library. The library is staffed by a paid part-time librarian and assistants and many dedicated volunteers. The Borough of Elmer provides the facility and contributes public funds every year, and Upper Pittsgrove Township, and Pittsgrove Township also contribute public funds depending on their budgets. 

As a result, we rely on a variety of fundraisers and donations from patrons like you in order to continue providing you our quality services for years to come! 

We're very grateful for any and all contributions, and there are a number of ways you can show your support!
