They often have events and speakers at this library. It is two stories, and you can find everything you want. It's a nice size library

Libraries are not dead. Just come to any of the branches of the Ocean County Library and you’ll see. A complete joy to visit and so much for the kids to do too!

Good easy parking (but can be full when busy). Quite a few Internet terminals. Nice people. Special events regularly. Nice walk around town while you're visiting.

What can one say about a library...they have books. Lots of them. Not the old, ripped kind that smell like mildew. They also have DVDs and Blu-rays to take out for free. Plenty of options for anyone looking to learn or simply hang out, believe...More

I love going to the Ocean County Library. I have attended programs for both adults and children here. I save a lot of money by checking out books rather than purchasing them. If you need internet access, the OCL has it. You can fax, copy,...More
