Since 1951, The Gill Memorial Library has been housed in a former stone residence with a long history extending back more than 200 years. It was one of the first buildings in the mall community of Paulsboro, according to Glouster County records. The Library staff and Board of Trustees are proud of this historical legacy, but the library was long overdue for a renovation and expansion that would provide much-needed space for group meetings, more book stacks, computer stations and an improved children’s section. After touring another library that Kimmel Bogrette designed, the Gill Library Board commissioned the firm to take on evaluation, planning and design for the expansion and renovation process. The Board has high hopes that this transformation will once again make Gill Library a destination for townspeople and boost an already strong community spirit.
