Board of Trustees Meeting Dates

Please take notice that the Library Board of Bernards Township will meet to discuss or act upon public business on each of the dates set forth below at the Library, 32 South Maple Avenue, Basking Ridge, New Jersey.


History of the Library


Bernards Township is a unique community with citizens of long residence and longer memories. Their recollections inspire an author to produce a polished book worthy of the resources.

The early dedicated library pioneers left behind volumes of minutes, at times so detailed as to reveal true book lovers, community movers and shakers. We all are recipients of their tireless efforts.
