Happy 110th Birthday Pompton Lakes Library!

Happy 110th Birthday Pompton Lakes Library!

The Pompton Lakes Public Library began as a gift to the people of Pompton Lakes from Mrs. Emanuel Einstein in memory of her late husband, who passed in 1909.  Mr. and Mrs. Einstein were residents of New York City and spent their Summers in  Pompton Lakes.  Mrs. Einstein supplied the town with the plot, building, equipment, and a stock of books, which were all dedicated in April of 1912 when the library first opened to the public.  

As the library celebrates one hundred ten years of service to the community, it continues to offer a wide variety of books, fiction and non-fiction, as well as magazines, newspapers, and most recently, DVDs to the public.  The library also offers numerous programs for the entire community.  The Friends of the Pompton Lakes Library was established in 2016 to support and promote the library as a community resource.
