Perth Amboy Free Public Library

The Library supports teachers' quests to foster avid readers, skilled researchers, and critical thinkers. Perth Amboy School Teachers (public, charter and private) are all eligible to receive a Perth Amboy Free Public Library card and utilize our numerous resources.

Our extensive print and digital materials allow us to supplement classroom instruction. Aside from our resources teachers are also welcome to schedule a class visit for library tours; story times; research help; book talks; and presentations on useful databases as well as homework help resources. To find out how the Library can help this year, please contact us.

The following databases are available to our partners in education:
