Morristown is a socially and ethnically diverse community offering a wide range of amenities to residents and visitors alike. A state-designated regional center, Morristown is the County Seat of Morris County and the home of both Morristown Memorial Hospital with an array of cultural facilities. George Washington really did sleep here, for Morristown served as his headquarters for two different winter encampments during the Revolutionary War. Morristown became characterized as “the military capital of the American Revolution” because of its strategic role in the war for independence from Great Britain. The National Trust for Historic Preservation has named Morristown one of its Dozen Distinctive Destinations and much its history is visible in a variety of locations throughout the town. Morristown boasts a wide number of historic attractions and museums, as well as several institutions serving the Arts.
Although Library service began in Morris Township in 1792, since 1965 the Morristown & Morris Township Library has served as a Joint Free Public Library and a social and cultural center for both municipalities. Through generous efforts by philanthropist Grinnell Willis to build a Library building for our residents in 1917, the Library has grown to four times its original size while serving hundreds of thousands of patrons every year. Currently, our Library provides residents with reading materials, access to technology and continuing education, self-improvement, enjoyment and information. We achieve this by providing a location for the dissemination of state and local documents, New Jersey history sources and materials that will support Historic Preservation research. We are the keystone for our two communities providing reading materials and programming for children, Bookmobile service to organizations within each municipality, computer classes and technology help for adults and spaces to meet for our communities. With the Library Foundation, our Friends of the Library and our collaborations with neighboring organizations and Community groups, we act as a social anchor not only within Morristown and Morris Township but also regionally.
