Mission Statement

The mission of the Boonton Holmes Public Library is to make the library an inviting focal point for the community, encourage a love of reading and life-long learning, preserve Boonton’s local history and offer patrons technology that extends access to ideas and information.


  • The Boonton Holmes Public Library offers our patrons a wide variety of items and services. From the New York Times Bestsellers to books by Local Authors, our collection has something for every age. Our friendly staff is always ready to help you find what you are looking for.  Even if we don’t own what you need, we can still help you find it!  We are a member of the MAIN consortium which connects us to the 36 other public libraries in Morris County and Bernards Township. This gives our patrons access to thousands of items beyond what we own.
  • The library also offers an exciting variety of programs and classes. From Yoga for Absolute Beginners to Coding Club for Kids we do our best to provide cultural and educational programs for all ages and interests.
  • Our facility is constantly being updated to accommodate the needs of our patrons.  In 2018, a lower level meeting room was converted into a modern Makerspace equipped with a variety of tools from sewing machines to Raspberry Pi mini computers.
  • The library offers public computers, which were completely upgraded in 2019, free WIFI, notary public by appointment, copier and fax service.
