REMEMBERING ARLINE MOST

Message from the library staff:
We received sad news at the library today. Arline Most, the Director of the Long Hill Township Library from 1993 to 2005, has died. Arline, along with a band of dedicated volunteers, was responsible for the library as you know it today.
It's hard to imagine now, but over two years Arline orchestrated big parties at The Stirling Hotel, a teen talent show, a toddler walk, cupcake and rummage sales, a small auction, dances, and penny jars at the elementary school, to raise $500,000. That's how the Long Hill Public Library was rebuilt at 917 Valley Road!
Arline gave tirelessly of her time in managing the day-to-day operation of the old library, while directing the many details of construction, and the move to the new library.
We love you Arline.

THE LIBRARY BY THE NUMBERS

Our library relies on local and state funding for financial support.  Local township tax allocations comprise 99% of our Library budget and have decreased more than 7% over the past decade.  Funding from the state has decreased more than 57% since 2010.

This infographic illustrates some of the ways our library supports the residents of Long Hill and surrounding communities.
