Become Part Of Our History - Support the Beacon Digitization

The Lambertville Free Public library is taking over 100 years of Lambertville’s former beloved newspaper – The Beacon – and making it available online for public reading! Doing this will preserve the history of Lambertville, ensuring that anyone can always go back and find out more about their families and the history of our area. All editions of The Beacon will be available through our website for free once the digitization process is complete. You may donate via our donation website or by mailing a check to the library.
