The Friends of the Frenchtown Area Libraries

The Friends of the Frenchtown Area Libraries is a nonprofit group of citizens who work together to support libraries and to increase public awareness of the value of libraries.  The Frenchtown area libraries include Frenchtown-Dixie, R.A. Vivian and Blue Bush Road.  Meetings are open to the public, and all are welcome to join.   Meetings are held twice a year, as are the semiannual book sales.

Lobby book sale, ongoing, with proceeds to The Friends of the Frenchtown Area Libraries.

Frenchtown Township Community Room 

The community room, located at the Frenchtown-Dixie Branch Library, belongs to Frenchtown Township and may be booked by calling the Frenchtown-Dixie Branch Library at 289-1035.  Because this room is connected to the Frenchtown-Dixie Library, it is used for library programs.  The room is available to Frenchtown residents, for a small fee.  The room, when available, can be used for $75.00, plus a refundable $50.00 security deposit.  At this time there are approximately 35-40 chairs and five tables in the community room.
