Maplewood Library to apply for Library Construction Bond Act funding

Adult Reading Room

On November 7, 2017, New Jersey voters approved the NJ Library Construction Bond Act, making $125 million available for public library construction throughout the state. The application process should open early in 2019.

“Maplewood Library is poised to apply for NJ Library Construction Bond Act funding at the earliest opportunity,” says Library Director Sarah Lester. “Our plan is in place for a beautiful, inspiring 21st century library, and we have strong support from the Maplewood Township Committee, the Library Board of Trustees, the Maplewood Library Foundation, and organizations and individuals throughout the community.”
