Library Services

The Borough of Hawthorne has established a free public library; know as the Louis Bay 2nd Library. The Borough of Hawthorne and the Borough of Prospect Park have entered into an agreement whereby the Louis Bay 2nd Library will be available to residents of Prospect Park. This is the ONLY library that the Borough of Prospect Park has an agreement with for the residents of Prospect Park.

When registering, you must come to the Borough of Prospect Park to the Clerk’s office, fill out an application and pay the fee (see below for fees). After registering, you must take your copy of the application to the Borough of Hawthorne and they will process the card for you.


This agreement entitles the residents of Prospect Park for a 1-year registration  from the time you register until the same date the following year, at the cost of $20.00 per household and $15.00 for seniors. Please note that if anyone else in the household wishes to purchase a second card, they must go directly to the Library and the cost will be the regular price of $100.00.
