History of the Boonton Holmes Pubic Library
The Boonton Holmes Public Library’s historic building was willed to the people of Boonton by James Holmes for use as a public library. Our doors opened in 1894 and we have been proudly serving the town of Boonton ever since. Over the years the library has shared the building with the Boonton Times Newspaper, Heavenly Temptations, and even the local chapter of the Free Masons. After acquiring the rights to the entire building, the library underwent an entire renovation to expand and provide an even greater level of service.
