THIS FROM ONE OF OUR "REGULARS," SALLY LOGAN GILMAN:Hi Tom: I last visited the Trenton Public Library in April 2004 when my husband and I were treated to a Four Views of Trenton tour by our dear friend Connie DeRemigis. I had not been to the library since attending Rider. It was a wonderful stop and I remembered the rooms like it was yesterday. They even had a 1955 THS yearbook and I showed everyone my picture. I went to the main library often even though we had a wonderful branch library on Hermitage Ave. when I was growing up. Your website means so much to me. Thanks again for all you do.

THE TRENTON PUBLIC LIBRARY
The old girl has fallen on hard times. I would hope that there will be a brighter future for the Trenton Public Library. The Trentoniana Collection is unsurpassed, with photographs, articles and other local history treasures within those 110 year old walls, many items of which date back to the earliest years of Trenton. There is an unfortunate perception that the area in which the library is located is unsafe, due to Trenton's deteriorating image with the criminal element. Such a perceptions has kept numerous acquaintances from venturing "up town."
