You may have heard that the Warren County Library opened a new branch this summer on Route 519 in Greenwich Township.
What does that mean for library service to residents of Alpha?
We are happy to report that the W.H. Walters Free Public Library will remain open for business as usual in its present location, continuing to serve residents of Alpha as we have since 1937. You will continue to have the same access to books, e-resources, magazines, movies, and everything else that the Library offers. As always, there will be no fee to join the Library for residents of Alpha.
We welcome all members of the public to attend programs and use our computers and reference material. However, to borrow materials, those outside of Alpha will need to purchase a library card, at a cost of $25.00 per year for an individual and $50.00 per year for a family.
Can Alpha residents use the new Warren County branch?
Yes. All public libraries open their doors to people regardless of their residence. However, residents of Alpha who wish to borrow materials from the new County branch will be required to purchase a card, for $38.75 for three months, $77.50 for six months or $155 for one year.
If you have any questions, comments or suggestions about Alpha Library, please feel free to contact the Library directly at 908-454-1445 or
We look forward to serving you for many years to come.

"Why buy a book when you can join a library?"
Inter-library Loan:
If we do not have the book you want we will try to borrow it from another library or may consider buying it and adding to our collection.
Box Tops for Education?
The Library is a collection site for Alpha Public Schools fundraiser - they will receive 10 cents for each box top redeemed.

Does the Library offers Fax Service for the Public?
