FRIENDS OF THE

LIBRARY

WHO WE

ARE

The Friends of the Finkelstein Memorial Library is an autonomous not-for-profit (501©3) corporation.

We are funded by nominal membership dues, book sales and other fund raisers, and tax-deductible donations from individuals and community business partners.

Our supporters and members, from the East Ramapo community and other Rockland localities, value our library as an outstanding broad-based educational and cultural center.

The Friends Board of Directors consists of a group of diverse individuals who love the library and appreciate the varied and unique services that the library provides to meet the needs of all people from a multiethnic population.

We welcome anyone who is interested in volunteering to help advance our goals.
