Bridgeton Public Library

Welcome to the Bridgeton Free Public Library's Adult Services web page! We hope you enjoy your stay here as much as we enjoy providing you this service.

Extensive Collection

The library has caught up to the Technology Age: those of you equipped with wireless cards in your laptops can now bring your mobile computer devices into the library and get connected to the Internet. This is another service provided to the public.  And it is free of charge!

Extensive Collection

Our collection includes some 62,000 volumes, among which is the largest selection of large print books in Cumberland County.  We subscribe to newspapers and periodicals.  We have the Bridgeton News on microfilm back to 1900.  Our collection on South Jersey history is one of the most extensive in the area because we've been here so long.  Bridgeton has enjoyed library service since 1811, and we've been at this location since 1900.

Resource Center

We think of the library as a total resource center, and hope you will use us as such.  Since the advent of computers, we have access to libraries all over the country, through the InterLibrary Loan Network.  If you want something we don't have, we will be glad to get it for you. The charge for this service is only $.25.

Woodruff Museum

Located on the lower level of the library is the George J. Woodruff Museum of Indian Artifacts.  Most of the collection (B.C. 9000 - A.D. 1700) was found locally. A visit to the museum is well worth your time. Check out our Woodruff Museum page.

Computers

The Bridgeton Public Library has computers with Internet access available for free public use by presenting your Library Card. A $.50 fee plus ID will be required if you do not have your card.  Your library card must be fine free to use a computer. Users must sign up at the desk. There is a 1 hour time limit per user per day (30 minute limit between 2 and 6pm) Copies may be printed at a cost of $.15 per page, through our dedicated Print Station. The computers are for reference information. Chat rooms are not permitted.

Library Card Options at the Bridgeton Public Library


As of November 1, 2012, the Cumberland County Library no longer subsidizes a county-wide (CLUES) library card. As a result, there are changes to library memberships:

Bridgeton, Millville and Vineland libraries now share a library system Cumberland County Library has joined a group in Gloucester County. Because now only Bridgeton taxpayers support the Bridgeton Library, there is a charge for Township residents.

Bridgeton residents Free card for use in Bridgeton, Millville and Vineland Libraries
Township residents Free card for Cumberland County Library
For township residents who would like to use city libraries:

Bridgeton Library only $15 per year
Millville Library only $30 per year
