Trenton Free Public Library Patricia Hall gave a tour of the Trenton Free Public Library and showcased some rare items in its archives. Founded in 1750, the Trenton Free Public Library is one of the oldest libraries in New Jersey. It began as a subscription library with its first 50 books being donated by Benjamin Franklin. In 1902, it became a public library open to the citizens of Trenton.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2017 LCV Cities Tour” in Trenton, New Jersey, from April 15-21 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on Book TV on C-SPAN2. close
