About the Trenton Free Public Library
The City of Trenton is located in Mercer County, across the Delaware River from Pennsylvania. The historic State Capital of New Jersey – which was the site of General George Washington’s first military victory in December 1776 and the nation’s Capitol for several weeks in 1784 – is centrally located between Philadelphia and New York City. The City of Trenton has a richly diverse population of 85,000 people.
The Trenton Library Company, precursor to the Public Library, was the first library in New Jersey and was one of the oldest in the United States. It became the Trenton Free Public Library in 1900, with the current building being built in 1902. The library is home to the Trentoniana Collection, a local history and genealogy collection that helps researchers explore the rich history of the City of Trenton and its residents. The library provides programming for children, teenagers, and adults, including preschool story times, crafts for children, STEM workshops, adult book clubs, lectures, senior citizen computer classes, and much more. The mission of the Trenton Free Public Library is to be a bridge that connects the community to literacy, guides learning and inspires curiosity.
