The library is now offering a homebound service which brings reading materials right to the doors of home-bound Long Branch residents. Library staff will deliver books to those who are homebound due to an illness or disablity. Patrons will choose their own titles or have staff choose for them using a reader profile. For more information and to find out how to sign up for this service please call or email Cadene Patterson at (732) 222-3900 ext. 2230 or


The Library and the Veterans Unit from the NJ Dept. of Labor would like to help increase your chances of finding employment and assist you with medical claims.  A representative from the Unit will meet with you at the library every second and fourth Thursday of the month from 2:00-4:00pm. Please call Victor Alvarado at 732-775-1566 or send an email to to make an appointment.


The Library is proud to offer an exciting new service!  We will be circulating museum passes for popular museums in our area:  Intrepid Air & Space Museum in New York City, Popcorn Park Zoo in Forked River, and the Monmouth Museum at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft.  The passes are designed for use by a family and each museum specifies how many people will be admitted on one pass.  The passes may be borrowed for two weeks but may not be renewed.  Adult patrons reserve on one pass at a time.  However, we cannot guarantee that the pass will be available on a certain date.  Passes can only be checked out at the Circulation Desk. Passes will only be loaned to adults with a Long Branch Free Public Library card. 

For more information, please call Thalia Sweet at 732-222-3900.
