What happened at the Stuffed Animal Sleepover?
Welcome to the official
web site of the Free Public Library of Hasbrouck Heights and thank
you for visiting.
Located in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey, the original building to
house the library was never intended as a
library at all. Instead, it was a clubhouse for a group of civic-minded men who
formed the "Borough League Association." When the group disbanded,
the building and property were deeded to the Hasbrouck Heights
Board of Education for the sum of $1, with the proviso that it be
used for "educational purposes." Thus, in 1917, the Free Public
Library of Hasbrouck Heights opened its doors.
Housed in the same building on Division
Avenue since 1917, The Library moved to its current home on the
Boulevard and Central Avenue and officially opened the doors to its
new facility in
December of 2003.
