Founded in 1910, the Library is a center for lifelong learning for people of all ages, backgrounds, and interests. 

The Collingswood Public Library’s mission is to serve the local community’s informational, educational, cultural, and social needs through open access to a wide range of ideas, resources, and services.

Vision: Collingswood Public Library will be the community hub where neighbors gather to learn, share, inspire, and create.
