Alfred H. Baumann Free Public Library

The Alfred H. Baumann Free Public Library was founded on May 26, 1962, through the efforts of the West Paterson Women's Club. Housed in a former church on 11 Whippany Avenue, the library outgrew the space and in 1979 relocated to its present facility at 7 Brophy Lane. In January 1992 the library was renamed the Alfred H. Baumann Free Public Library in honor of the mayor and school principal of West Paterson, Alfred Baumann. Today, more than 50% of the residents in Woodland Park are library card holders! The library is a vibrant and exciting place in our growing community. 

Leap into Science is a program in partnership with The Franklin Institute Science Museum to promote family and student engagement and achievement in science and literacy. The program gets kids excited about wondering and exploring, as well as aims to integrate literacy and science by linking books with inquiry-based hands-on science activities.
