The library has several ways for you to learn more about the past. You can research your family history with Ancestry Library Edition or HeritageQuest. These databases are usually only accessible inside the library building, but for now we’re able to make them available to library cardholders at home.
Whether your family is from here or you just want to research New Jersey history, all you need is your library card to search Historical Newspapers: New Jersey Collection, with articles going back as far as 1891. You can also explore the Culmen yearbooks and several books about Scotch Plains and Fanwood history in our Joint Digital Archives.
