History of NPL
Levels of Support
The Newark Public Library Ambassador Program is a group of community leaders who seek to promote philanthropy and service in the interest of the Library. These individuals are influencers, promoters and prominent leaders passionate about transforming our community.
We would like to invite you to join us as a leader in your professional and social circles. Our goal is to engage and connect change-makers as well as inspire philanthropic impact among new donors.
Members will have the opportunity to convene to celebrate the work of Newark Public Library and network with each other. You’ll also serve as true ambassadors to the Library, helping to spread the word about work that the Library does to strengthen our community, including programming and events.
Since 1889, The Newark Public Library has been an anchor institution in Newark. It is New Jersey’s most comprehensive public library, serving nearly 10,000 patrons per week and providing equal access for all to vast educational, cultural, literary, historical, and digital resources.
Today, with 8 locations throughout the city, the Library strives to transforms lives and strengthen communities through innovative services, stimulating programs, and inspiring collections.
The following benefits are available for three years for participants in the Ambassador program. Ambassadors will have the opportunity to renew their membership and continue to inspire excellence in leadership, engagement and philanthropy.
Newark Public Library takes pride in connecting our community members and partners. We would like to encourage you to do the same! Through our Ambassador Referral Program if you inspire five of your peers to join at any level, you will automatically be elevated to the next Ambassador level!
