The library building and the book drop are closed until further notice. We are offering only online services and events at this time.
From the Director's Desk
As requested by the School Board the public library moved out of the school building on August 15. Our books and furniture are currently in storage. The Library Board is in the process of securing a trailer to be placed on Park Place West. The trailer will serve as a temporary home until our new library building is built. We hope to sign the trailer lease on September 1. Then it will be another 2 - 3 weeks for delivery and installation of the trailer. Once the move is complete, we will again offer curbside delivery of books. Watch our website for news.
In the meantime we are available to answer your questions by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone. Note our phone number has changed to 609-642-9675. You may call or text this number. If you call, please leave a short message with your name and we will respond as soon as we can.
Remember we are still holding library events. Read about them below. You can also check out ebooks and eaudiobooks at eLibraryNJ.
See you in September.
