Our Mission

Ideas are among the most powerful of human forces and knowledge is an essential tool for modern living. Since access to these ideas and this knowledge through written, audio, visual and electronic media are significant, it is the mission of the Perth Amboy Free Public Library to serve all the people of Perth Amboy equally and impartially to the best of our ability. Toward that end, the library seeks, as a supplement to formal education, to purchase and retain the best and useful resources to meet the informational needs of the entire community.
