The Joseph J. Truncer Library:

The Batsto Village Library was started in the early days of the Batsto Citizens Committee and another expansion in 2004-2005. The Village was a natural place for collecting books relating to South Jersey history, iron making, glass production, and the Pine Barrens.

The library was under the direction of Beatrice Stuckert for many years with plans to eventually be open to researchers. The library was renamed in 1974 to honor Mr. Joseph Truncer for his invaluable assistance to the committee and to Batsto while he held various positions in the NJ Department of Environmental Protection.

Today’s library and archives vault are part of the Visitors Center expansion that occurred in the early 1980’s.
