The Friends of the Hoboken Public Library, sponsors of this fundraiser, organized the first Novel Night in 2007. The event has generated tremendous support from the community. In addition to the generous hosts and the close to 200 diners who attend each year, a number of local businesses have contributed financial and/or in-kind support to Novel Night.
Proceeds from previous Novel Nights have helped fund the preservation of precious and fragile historical documents housed at the Hoboken Public Library.
