About the Library

Who we are 

The Township of Ocean (NJ) library is a Branch of the Monmouth County library system and is a collaborative blend of municipal, county and non-profit entities coming together to provide the best library services and resources to the community.      


Reciprocal lending and borrowing, trained and talented staff, visionary digital offerings of ebooks and databases at the library and remotely, as well as a comprehensive collection of  traditional print and media items, assure our residents have all the information resources that they need.

The Ocean Township Library Branch offers programs for all ages in the area of visual and dramatic arts, music, history, community-minded, and just plain fun!

One of the busiest branches in the County system, the library is situated in an area flanked by other cultural resources such as the Township of Ocean Historical Museum, and the Township's Human Resources group.      A section of the older restored part of the library building houses the Terner Gallery which ihosts art showings and musical interludes throughout the year.
