Through the generosity of donors, the Montclair Public Library Foundation has been able to provide the Montclair Public Library with $50,000. These additional funds will allow the library to remain open on Sundays.
Foundation President Randy Strickland said that because of donor support, “the Foundation could provide the money to keep the library open from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Sundays.”
In thanking the Foundation and the Montclair community, Montclair Public Library Director, David Hinkley said, "We know that Sunday hours are important, particularly for families, working people and students.”
The Montclair Public Library Foundation also announced the addition of three new board members. Montclair residents Sarah R. Brocks, Jennifer Dorr and Scott D. Pollack will join the existing MPL Foundation board.
Brocks, a graduate of Rutgers College and Cornell Law School is the executive director of the Friends of the Bellevue Library. Dorr, a graduate of Tufts University is a freelancer and communications specialist. Pollack holds a bachelors degree from Connecticut College and is a founder and managing partner of wealth management firm Pollack Financial Group.
Donations to the Library are always welcome, and can be made by check to the Montclair Public Library Foundation at 50 South Fullerton Avenue, Montclair NJ, or through the Foundation’s website: http://www.montclairplf.org/
