Potential Improvements

If the library were to provide programs (either adult or youth services) on the southern end of Denville, closer to Route 10, how likely would you be to attend?
Please check all the areas in which you would be interested in seeing the library improve our current facility.
Would you support improving the library's facility through municipal bond funding and/or private donations and fundraising?


The library is considering forming a non-profit foundation to focus on fundraising. If you would be interested in participating, please email director@denvillelibrary.org for more information.
