A place to read, create and celebrate the Donald and Carol Kress Pavilion is located in the heart of Egg Harbor and home to the Village Library and Community Center. The building was completed in early 2018 and features a second floor Great Hall event space with wrap-around porches that offer sweeping views of the bay and surrounding orchards. In addition to the modern, customizable Great Hall space, visitors have access to two meeting spaces, a lounge and living room with a fireplace.

The Kress Pavilion features current audio-visual equipment, flat screen T.V.s, and teleconferencing capabilities throughout.  On the first floor is a Makers Space, offering a space for tech and hands on programming. Residents and tourists are welcome to host a small gathering, private meeting, and celebration or simply enjoy the pavilion as a library patron.
