A Fall Message from our Director
Welcome to East Orange Public Library on the Web. As we close the doors on another successful Summer Reading Program, we look forward to the new school year when the Library once again partners with the East Orange Schools to ensure that each child has one of the most important school supplies in their backpack, a library card. We also look forward to meeting with many parents at Back-to-School Night Events this fall and talking about the many programs and resources we have at EOPL.
For decades, our Library has been the place people go to for information, inspiration, recreation and lifelong learning. It is a center for people to meet neighbors and friends and to build a sense of community. Emerging information technologies, like the ones we used to create this new website, help us provide for our community in ways we never could have imagined when we opened our doors over 100 years ago. We hope you utilize this website to connect with the Library, and the community. We offer a variety of educational opportunities, services, and programs for youth and adults, and our Collection offers a wide range of titles on interesting and useful subjects. We also provide public computers in all our Library locations with access to a large number of databases and other virtual resources. But whether you walk through the doors of EOPL, visit one of our neighborhood branch libraries, or continue to visit us on the Web, we're glad you're here!
The East Orange Public Library helps people of all ages meet their informational, educational, and recreational needs by acquiring organizing, and assisting in the use of print and non-print resources.
