Summer Reading Club
An annual event for libraries across the country, the Foundation of the Atlantic City Free Public Library has sponsored this program each year by providing a family fun day at the world famous Steel Pier for youth that complete the summer reading requirements.
Summer of Freedom
The library added a new display at its' Atlantic City Experience Exhibit at Jim Whelan Boardwalk hall in 2022. The new display recognizes the importance of the "Mississippi Summer Project" and its primary mission to register Black Mississippians to vote. In June of 1964, hundreds of Black and White students as well as volunteers protested at the Democratic Convention in Atlantic City.
The Little Library Project
Fully funded by the Foundation, the Little Library Project rolled out our first library in O'Donnell Park, on Saturday, April 22, 2023. In partnership with the Little Free Library Organization, we hope to place numerous libraries across the city in the coming year.
