History of the Millville Library
The History of the Millville Public Library
Millville Public Library at 210 Buck Street, Millville, is offering an exhibit: “The History of Millville in 25 Objects.” This exhibit will appear throughout October during the regular hours of operation. The Millville Public Library is open Monday through Thursday 10:00 am to 8:00 pm, Friday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, and Saturday 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Each object represents an era, an area of concern or endeavor, a famous Millvillian, or series of events or institutions. One example is a small clutch of the Ukrainian artistically decorated Easter eggs, Pysanky. The eggs represent all the immigrants that came to Millville from Europe, Africa, Asia, and Latin America…all bringing features of their culture and life from elsewhere. A report card from the 19th century represents early organized education in Millville and subsequent establishment of Cumberland County College.
There are some rarely seen objects. On the 1749 map of what became Millville, originally drawn in 1748, one can see the “Morris River” and the Gloucester to Cape May Road. That object represents Millville in Colonial America. There is a copy, the original being too fragile, of the first edition of the “Millville Dally Republican” from 1864. That year is significant for many reasons, but to be sure, the founding year of the Millville Public Library, 150 years ago. That paper represents communications: telegraph, subsequent publication, radio, television, telephones and the internet.
One can see sports, crime, the early fire department and public services, veterans, youth activities, the hospital, banking & commerce, organized religion, the WWII war efforts, the creation of Union Lake, the beginning of motoring and other transporting modes, and of course, the glass industry all represented.
All are invited to view the display.
