Serving our community with pride since 1960

Conveniently located just off Skyline Drive, the “new” Ringwood Public Library has served as the Community Center of Ringwood since opening our new building in 2000.

We offer FREE:

  • Wireless internet service
  • Notary on staff
  • Community room for use by local non-profit groups

Often called the “Jewel of Ringwood”, the Library is a full service facility offering educational, recreational and cultural events and services to all.

As a member of PALS Plus, the computer consortium of Passaic County and beyond, the Library shares collections and services with 17 other libraries, to greatly enhance the offerings our patrons enjoy.
