About the Library

The five-story, 135,000 square-foot facility is situated on the quad just east of Green Hall, directly between West Hall and Eickhoff Hall.  In addition to housing traditional library collections and services in an atmosphere that is elegant yet friendly and inviting throughout, the building provides 26 group study rooms, a café, a late-night study area, and a 105-seat multi-purpose auditorium. A self-guided audio tour of the library is available.

Library Mission: The R. Barbara Gitenstein Library, in support of the College’s mission, provides high-quality information resources, expertise, and a learning environment that enhance the search for knowledge and understanding. The Library serves as an intellectual, cultural and social center for the College, empowering TCNJ community members to become self-directed, lifelong learners and responsible citizens.
