Week of 9/20/2020 Updates

The Library is open with limited capacity.
We appreciate your cooperation in following
our health and safety protocols.
Please click here for specific procedures.

The library is CLOSED all Saturdays in September.


Due to COVID-19 as per Executive Order of Governor Murphy
and for the health and safety of the public and staff,
the Library will not admit unaccompanied minors, (anyone under the age of 18)
at any time, until further notice.

Further, (once schools open) parents may not pick up students
in the library parking lot,
as this creates crowds of unattended children
at the entrance to the library,
and poses a health risk to the public.
Parents may pick up their children only at the schools or Burke’s Park. 

Please click the link above to read the policy in its entirety.

The Children’s Department continues to offer
curbside pick-up of “Family Book Bags”,
an assortment of books chosen for your family
by Children’s Dept. staff.
Mondays
from 5:30-7:30pm
