The mission of the New Brunswick Free Public Library is providing educational, informational, cultural and recreational resources and services to all the diverse people in New Brunswick.

The library provides access to the universe of information, and especially that which is of immediate relevance and interest to the community. This access is provided through print, video, audio, and electronic materials selected, organized, and maintained so as to be accessible and relevant to the present and future needs of the community it serves. In this effort, the New Brunswick Free Public Library cooperates with other libraries, and with other educational, and governmental institutions. Special emphasis is placed on service to youth.

About the Library:

In its historic building, the library strives to give personalized, quality service to the community while adopting the computerized information tools this century. The New Brunswick Free Public Library traces its roots back to the 1796 Union Library Company. The present library, incorporated in 1890, has been serving the community for a century from its Carnegie building on Livingston Avenue.

The library was expanded in 1990 with the addition of a larger Reference Room and a Community Meeting Room.

In 1994, the Children’s Room was expanded and a Story Hour Room was added. A new elevator completed in 2002 provides handicapped access to multiple levels of the library and added convenience for seniors and others discouraged by stairs.
