***Church Street Construction: ****

Please be advised that Church Street is currently under construction, however, the building parking lot is still accessible unless work is happening directly in front of the building. For easy access to the building,  parking is available on Orchard and at the Bertschinger Center. The building can be entered via the front door or service door during construction. Curbside library hold pick-ups will be made available at the service entrance as well.

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.



Incorporated in 1964, the Village of Egg Harbor is was rated one of America’s Top Ten Coolest Small Towns.

A year-round destination, the Village offers water recreation, walking trails, wonderful scenery, live concerts, public art, and an enchanting variety of retail shops, restaurants, and accommodations for visitors.
