THANK YOU! Our Annual Appeal is ongoing. We are grateful to everyone that has contributed to our fund, and through the Rumson Community Appeal! The OFL is not a Branch Library of MCL or a Municipal Library. We remain a private library, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) corporation, and therefore dependent upon the generosity of our clients. Contributions support our day-to-day operations. .
Meets the first Tuesday of the month
