Hopewell Public Library was founded on March 14, 1914 and became Municipal by 1917, receiving funding from the Hopewell Borough Council. It has moved several times, from its original location in a harness shop to Borough Hall, to a shared space with the Hopewell Museum, to its present location in the old National Bank building.
While the library continues to offer fiction, biography, non-fiction and reference books and periodicals, it also provides an impressive local historical collection, a vast collection of children’s books and videos, internet service, audio tapes, discussion groups, a delivery service to those who cannot leave their homes, and story times, crafts and activities for children.
Additionally, the library provides copier services, space for local meetings and a community Bulletin Board. It currently circulates nearly 17,500 books and estimates its active patronage at over 900. It has an active Friends of the Hopewell Public Library.
