If you haven’t visited lately, you may not recognize us!

Far from its humble beginnings as a one room library behind the Lawrence Shopping Center, the Lawrence Headquarters Branch now stands at the helm of the Mercer County Library System, housing a variety of print, electronic and audiovisual materials, in addition to the Lawrence Historical Collection and the Library Administrative Offices. Numerous book displays, bookmarks, newsletters and other handouts serve to inform and to complement our seasonal decorations, creating an atmosphere of warmth and welcome amidst a very busy building! 

During our most recent building expansion, which was completed in 1997, the Branch gained an additional 7,000 square feet of library space and now boasts eight conference rooms for community and non-profit use, Internet, word processing, Publisher, Excel and PowerPoint access from every public terminal, extensive print and electronic business reference sources, including Lexis-Nexis and a room dedicated to New Jersey materials that also houses key genealogical research resources and an sixteen PC Computer Instruction lab.

The Branch offers a full monthly schedule of computer instruction classes, from an introductory mouse class to PowerPoint and intermediate Excel training, as well as monthly adult programming, book discussions and children’s activities, all of which are listed in our monthly "Calendar of Events" and "Computer Instruction Brochure" and are free of charge. In addition to the more traditional programs, the Headquarters Branch coordinates the system-wide Home Bound Delivery Program, which matches patrons who are permanently or temporarily homebound with volunteers who select and deliver library materials and system-wide participation in the NJ Department of Education Professional Development Provider Program by offering classes to NJ Educators that count toward professional development credit.

Visit the Friends of the Lawrence Library website to learn how to become a friend and other ways to support library programming for both adult and children and for volunteer opportunities.
