The Margaret E. Heggan Free Public Library of the Township of Washington will be the community’s primary resource for knowledge, information, and enjoyment, with emphasis on convenient accessibility and customer-oriented service. The Library will strive to:

  • Provide materials which are of most interest to users of all ages; especially preschool and adult age groups who have no other library at their disposal;
  • Instill a love of reading and learning, and a familiarity with the Library, in all residents but especially in preschool children from infancy through the kindergarten age;
  • Provide prompt and accurate information to individuals, groups, businesses, and government in our community;
  • Assist elementary and secondary students with information, materials, and services which support their formal education assignments and interests;
  • Be a place where our community can gather, learn, and connect with each other.
