History of Washington Twp. Public Library

Library service in Washington Township began in the 1920s with small library stations established in private homes throughout the township, until the P.T.A. set up a community library in the Long Valley school in the 1950s. In 1967, as a result of the efforts of the Long Valley Women’s Club and the Historical Society, the Washington Township Library Association was formed and the Washington Township Public Library opened on Fairview Avenue. As an Association Library, the library derived its income largely from contributions and was staffed principally by volunteers, receiving assistance and services from the Morris County Free Library.

With the rapid growth of township population came increased demand for services. In 1981, the library moved to larger quarters on Schooley’s Mountain, gradually increasing its paid staff to meet clerical and professional needs.

In 1983, the Library Trustees appointed a Citizen’s Task Force to study and make recommendations for long-term goals for library service to a still rapidly growing Township. On the basis of the Task Force Report, and with significant community involvement, a successful referendum was passed by voters in November 1984 to establish a municipal library, making it, by law, a tax-supported institution.

As the Township continued to grow it was recognized that a new facility was needed. Ground was broken in Rock Spring Park for a new facility May 1995. The new Washington Township Public Library opened to the public June 1996.
