1900 – The first library was established in one of of the school buildings on Franklin Turnpike. 600 items were available to borrow, which the library had on loan from the State Library in Trenton.

1910 – The school needed the library space for use as a cloak room, so the library then re-located to a store in town owned by John Ackerman.

1915 – The library was re-located to the second floor of the new fire house, which was also Borough Hall.
