Henry Phipps and Sarah Juliette Ross had left a considerable Trust for a Library and Museum. They had purchased Chestnut Hall for the Museum and left instructions in their will for a library to be erected on the same property, and for a Ross Trust to be established to help support these two institutions. Building was completed in 1977, and in 1982 the Ross Memorial Library became one of the current 61 provincial libraries.
The New Brunswick Public Library System provides access to a provincial collection of more than 1.8 million items, as well as to programs and services ranging from story hour to public lectures to services such as reference, Inter-Library loan and public access to the Internet via both desktop computer and WiFi connection."
