The Hoboken Public Library is the free public library of Hoboken, New Jersey. It is a member of the Bergen County Cooperative Library System, a consortium of municipal libraries in the northeastern New Jersey counties of Bergen, Hudson, Passaic, and Essex. The library was established in 1889 and expanded through the philanthropy of Martha Bayard Stevens. The library building, located at 500 Park Avenue, was built from 1895 to 1897, and was designed by architect Albert Beyer with Italian Renaissance Revival style. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on August 4, 2015, for its significance in architecture, education and social history.[3][4]

The library also operates a small branch at 124 Grand St., in the Multi-Service Community Center building housing various other municipal services.[5][6]
