Ocean County Library serves over 510,000 residents. The 33 municipalities that comprise Ocean County vary widely in median income, age distribution, and racial and ethnic makeup. Located between the exploding New York and Philadelphia metropolitan areas, Ocean County is a textbook example of exurban growth-complete with its benefits and challenges.
The Ocean County Library is twenty branches strong and still expanding, with the Ocean County Library Headquarters building in Toms River doubling in size, a new facility coming in the Whiting section of Manchester, and plans to double the size of the Ocean County Library busiest branch in Brick Township. We have an excellent reputation with the citizens and government of Ocean County, among public libraries in the State, and in the Nation. We are constantly seeking ways to improve the way we do our work and improve the quality of life for our customers.
