Learn About Upper Montclair's Library

Upper Montclair, New Jersey: A program regarding the history of one of Essex County's oldest library buildings will be held later this month.

According to the Friends of Anderson Park, the Bellevue Avenue Library History Tour will begin at 4:00pm on Saturday, May 21st outside of the Bellevue Avenue Branch in Upper Montclair. The library, which dates to 1914, is one of the only Carnegie libraries in Essex County, which is why it is listed on the National and State Registers of Historic Places. According to the Montclair Historical Society, the tour will be led by historian Lisanne Renner, and visitors will see historic pictures of the building as they explore its architecture on the inside and outside.

Admission to the event is free and open to the public. The library is located at 185 Bellevue Avenue, between Norwood Avenue and Valley Road.
