A Library from Pompton Lakes, New Jersey USA


Postcard
Pompton Lakes is a 2.97 sq mile suburban community in Passaic County which is home for over 11,900 residents.

Emanuel Einstein, President of Somerset Manufacturing Company and Vice President of Raritan Woolen Mills, summered in Pompton Lakes for many years prior to his death in 1909. It was announced the year after his death that his wife and children had decided to perpetuate his name by erecting and presenting to the Borough of Pompton Lakes a two-story building to be named the Emanuel Einstein Memorial.

The original building contained a library with a reading room open at all hours for public use.
