Alfred H. Baumann Free Public Library


The Alfred H. Baumann Free Public Library was originally founded 50 years ago in 1962 through the efforts of the West Paterson Women's Club. 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. Keep an eye on this page to see upcoming events and programs held at the library!

This place is my second home! The librarians, the books, CDs, anything you want, you will find. Very helpful, diverse, friendly, convenient, and relaxing! My favorite library in the world!!

A very nice little library, wonderful staff! A terrific place specially for beginning readers! They have plenty of things for everyone. In addition to a variety of books, they have a nice collection of music CDs, Audiobooks, DVDs and Blu-Ray movies available that you can borrow. Not much on video games, but I suppose that's understandable. They have a lot of programs going on all the time. Parking can suck some times since they share it with the Police Department, Courthouse and other Municipal Offices. Cheers!
