ANNUAL APPEAL

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.  .
