The Atlantic City Free Public Library

The Atlantic City Heritage Collections are housed at the Main Library building. An appointment is required to use the collections. Research hours are not available due to the covid-19 emergency. Please contact us if you wish the library do conduct research for you.

 The library also has some exhibits and occasional programs relating to Atlantic City history. No appointment is needed for these.

The library operates the Atlantic City Experience at Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall which is a wonderful exhibit and introduction to the rich history of the City. Please note that this exhibit is open to the public weekdays from 9 AM to 5 PM but The Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall that controls access to the exhibit will occasionally close the exhibit areas for special events and Boardwalk Hall events. Please check the Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall Events Schedule before planning your visit.
