Library Information

The Lambertville Free Public Library began as the Stryker Library Association in 1881. After a municipal referendum in 1925, The Stryker Library was folded into the newly formed Lambertville Free Public Library in 1926 and continues to provide library and community services to the residents of Lambertville today. 

The Library, now currently housed in the historic Lilly Mansion at 6 Lilly Street in Lambertville, provides a full range of services including access to Interlibrary Loan services, Internet, and ebooks, as well as books, audiobooks, movies and programming for adults and children.

The Board of Trustees Meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month beginning at 7 PM at the Library, 6 Lilly Street, Lambertville. For more information please contact the board secretary Jacqueline Sornstein at (609) 397-5085.

For a full list of the services and programs offered by the library, please visit their website The Lambertville Free and Public Library.

The Lilly Mansion

Home of the Lambertville Free Public Library

About 1812, Judge John Coryell, a son of Captain George Coryell, sold a large tract of land to an early settler, Dr. John Lilly, who built a mansion upon it, sometime between 1812 and 1830. 

The lawns and gardens originally stretched from Bridge Street east to the cliff and south to Swan Creek, and included a pond and stables. 

In 1946, the front lawn became the site of a service station, and over the years subdivided lots were sold to the south and east. In later years the mansion was used as the Moose Lodge, apartments, and the Senior Citizen Center.

The building was purchased by the City of Lambertville in 1980 after falling into disrepair. Major restoration work was completed in 1993, retaining the mansion's historic character while providing a modern facility to meet the needs of the community. Spacious surroundings, a second floor meeting room, children’s library, and computer capabilities pave the way for future growth.
