​The Johnstown Public Library first opened in 1957 as a branch of the Newark Public Library. It was originally located within a single room of the Town Hall at the Monroe Township House.  In 1995, Mary E. Babcock provided funding for the project to purchase land to construct a brand new, modern facility to accomodate the growth and demand of the Johnstown community.  The new Mary E. Babcock Library opened in early 2006 with 4 times the floor space and 3 times more computers than before.
