Please support The Long Hill Township Library. Donations from generous individuals and institutions allow the Library to update and increase collections, provide special events and programs for the community, and improve technology. All the support that we receive from our community allows us to increase resources and services for our patrons.
Please consider supporting the Library today in one of the ways suggested below.
Offer your time and talents
Volunteering is a satisfying way to contribute your time and skills to the library. We use a small group of volunteers to:
- Shelve books
- Cover books
- Keep our collection in good order
- Index obituaries
- Help with special projects
If you are interested in volunteering, please print our Volunteer Application, fill it in and return it to the main desk at the library. You may indicate your availability and areas of interest and our volunteer coordinator will contact you when an opening occurs.

Mark a Special Occasion with a book and custom bookplate
You can help build our collection by purchasing a book to mark a special occasion.
For a contribution of $45 or more, we will put a bookplate in a new library book to honor or commemorate a person or an event (for ex. Congratulations, Birthday, Retirement, Bon Voyage, Memorial).
Stop by to discuss or print our Book Tribute Form, fill it in and mail it with your check to the Long Hill Township Library, 917 Valley Road, Gillette, NJ 07933.
