The Branch's History

After being serviced by a bookmobile for a few years, the first West Windsor Branch opened in the former Christian Education Building of the Dutch Neck Church in 1966. A new, expanded Branch opened in the municipal center in November 1983. However, rapid population growth and corresponding increase in library use quickly rendered that building inadequate and in August 1997, the Branch moved to its current 23,000 square foot building. The bright and inviting new library is equipped with state of the art technology and comfortable furnishings to support research, quiet study and children's activities.

Distinctive Aspects of the Collection

In keeping with our mission to provide materials and services that satisfy the educational, informational, recreational and cultural needs of our diverse community, our Children's Department, brightened by Ilya Spirin's colorful "Rain Forest Mural", houses the largest juvenile book collection in the system, and our International Children's Book Collection, which encompasses 16 languages. The Chinese Language Collection has nearly 3000 books; the Branch subscribes to several Chinese and Indian newspapers and periodicals, and our rapidly expanding DVD collection includes hundreds of Hindi and Chinese films.

Displays

Gallery space can be reserved for one month at a time for art exhibits or displays; three display cases (locked) can be reserved-also monthly-to display collectibles. (For further information, please contact the Branch manager.)

My mom had instructed me to close my eyes as we recited our prayers, said thanks for a good day, and asked for another one. I remember that it was an especially dark night and late into October, with Halloween right around the corner. My mom’s shadow then moved along the wall as she kissed me goodnight, turned off the light, and left... View the post.

Create an Outdoor Book-themed Library Path with Bricks and Paint

October 23, 2020 - 2:30pm

At our Library, we’ve been trying to creatively engage with our patrons in new ways due to the changes and challenges for service that have occurred in 2020. Youth librarians, educators, parents, camps, and other institutions that are involved in lifelong learning are likely familiar with indoor and outdoor paths that can be created with stickers, chalk, paint, artwork, signs, and physical structures. You may have seen some of these spring up with a flourish around your neighborhood during the quarantine. Activity and sensory paths, formal story walks and even window displays can be fun means...
