    Welcome to the Raritan Public Library

 Explore our site to find out information on our books, graphic novels, e-books, magazines, videos, DVDs, recorded books, CDs, and our policies. For books not available in our library we also offer an inter-library loan service. In addition, we sponsor many activities such as our Book Clubs for adults and teens, Storytimes for children, movie nights and many others. We encourage you to come explore our library to see its rustic and historical features. The Raritan Public Library is an historical site. The carpeting and window treatments are designed to match the time period in which the structure was built. We also feature a museum dedicated to the Raritan war hero Sgt. John Basilone. So come curl up with a good book in our cozy library. We look forward to seeing you.
