The Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Library was the result of Senator Joseph R. Grundy?s Last Will and Testament directive that the Grundy Foundation be founded in order to establish a Memorial Museum that is named in honor of his sister as well as a library adjacent to it. According to it, the resources of the Bristol Free Library were to be secured with the erection of a new facility.
The Memorial Library, overlooking the Delaware River, opened in 1966 to serve as the public library for Bristol Borough as well as its surrounding areas. With more than 86,000 items in its collections, the library is able to serve its more than 2,000 members.
The Library?s collection consists of a wide variety of popular and informational resources that are in print and electronic formats.
The Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Library is adjoined by the former Grundy home that now functions as a museum. It also serves as a gathering place in Borough that offers various programs for babies, children, and adults.
