“My decision to locate my personal library in Newark, and specifically in the Newark Public Library, was determined by a longstanding sense of gratitude to the city where I was born in 1933.” – Philip Roth. Roth's gift of over 7,000 books is one of the largest personal collections to be donated to a public library. The bequest also includes awards given to Roth, honorary diplomas, furniture, and personal effects.
