Morristown has made the library system part of its community and cultural fabric since 1792, when its first circulating library had 96 books for its 97 members. Today, the library boasts more than 230,000 books, DVDs, magazines, CDs, audio and e-books and other materials. Visitors can view rotating art exhibits in the Kirby Gallery or take advantage of one of the library’s near-daily activities, like book clubs, classes, film series, lectures and more.

The North Jersey History and Genealogy Center, which is based in the library, has a research department with over 60,000 books, maps, microfilm archival and manuscript collections relating to New Jersey.

Of Special Note:
• The stained glass medallions in the Morristown Library depict Columbus’s ships and the monograms of five American poets
• The enormous golden eagle in the Reference Room was the only item remaining from the devastating Morristown Armory fire of 1920, formerly the library’s home
