    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.

    Creating a city of readers through our summer reading programs for teens and children, the Fade to Books reading program in City barbershops as well as our Little Library Project.
    The Library provides essential services which enrich the lives of our seniors, teens and children. Without your loyalty and support, this free and accessible public service simply would not survive. To help meet the Library's financial challenges, the Foundation seeks support to supplement the funding provided by The City of Atlantic City.
