2024 Library Finalist: National Medal for Museum and Library Service

The Library ♥️Hearts♥️ Lambertville

The Lambertville Free Public Library is thrilled to announce that we are among the 15 libraries honored as finalists for the 2024 National Medal for Museum and Library Service! The Institute of Museum and Library Services presents this nation’s highest honor to museums and libraries for exceptional contributions to their communities.

Our little library is in the national spotlight for serving as a community catalyst to engage, support, and bring together all who live here.

We couldn’t have done it without you, Lambertville! All of this was made possible through the efforts of our many volunteers and supporters. This is truly a community honor that belongs to everyone. We hope you all will feel the same sense of joy and celebration that we do at the library!

We are excited to continue carrying out our mission to inspire all who live in Lambertville to learn, explore, create, and connect. We are honored and grateful to be able to serve as your community-centered library, right at home in Lambertville.

Stay tuned for more information for how to participate in our Share Your Story campaign!

This used to be a big, white bookshelf, and it still is, underneath it’s fancy new display. Someone worked magic on it, and we now have a place for you to share your experiences and stories about your time in the library!

I was crossing over the free bridge to Pennsylvania the other day, and traffic was slow enough that I could look out at the scenery, and I was happy to see yet another harbinger of spring–a small boat, anchored near the bridge, line fishing. They were fishing for shad!
