More than books...the library is your community resource center.


The mission of the Runnemede Public Library is to create a strong community partnership providing programs and services that bring people together, foster creativity and encourage life-long learning. 

Libraries represent a place of refuge for all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, color, economic status, physical or mental capacities.  It is our hope that the death of George Floyd will serve as a catalyst for meaningful conversations and actions that would lead to racial healing in our country.

We value our past, enrich present  lives and prepare for an ever-changing future.


The vision of the Runnemede Public Library is to be the heart of the community where all are welcome to learn, discover, create and connect.
