The Library has been part of the community’s cultural fabric since 1792, when its first circulating library had 96 books for 97 members.  Today, the Library holds more than 250,000 volumes of books, DVDs, audio, eBooks, eMagazines, periodicals, streaming services, a museum pass program, a lendable Library of ‘Things’ and other materials.  The Library hosts regular programming for children and adults and its historic building features WWI memorial ironwork by Samuel Yellin, a huge golden eagle from the former Morristown Armory, stained glass window medallions, and an 8’ x 12’ 1867 painting by Thomas Nast.

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
