The New Jersey Room

The New Jersey Room houses our collection of current and historical books about the state and local Pennington and Hopewell areas. The room also contains rotating displays featuring historical photographs and local art (See Exhibitions below). The room may be used for quiet study on a walk-in basis. However, the library access door to the room must stay open at all times.

Exhibitions

Our exhibitions in The New Jersey Room feature artwork and photographs by local and regional artists. If you are interested in displaying your work with us, please fill out and submit a Partner With Us form and we will be in touch.

Free Wi-Fi

Bring your laptop, tablet or other Internet-connected device into the Library and connect to our free wireless network.

Coffee & Tea

The library’s self-service Keurig machine brews a fresh cup of coffee, tea or hot cocoa in just 30 seconds. There are a variety of brands to choose from including Starbucks, Green Mountain, San Francisco Bay, Twinings and Grove Square. A $1 donation is requested.

The Swapping Spinner

We are pleased to offer the use of the Swapping Spinner located outside the doors of the Library and accessible whenever Borough Hall is open. Your hardcover or paperback books are welcome — as long as they fit on the rack!  Please don’t leave items on the floor, in boxes or in bags. Feel free to help yourself to any materials on the spinner at any time, whether or not you have made a contribution.
