NEW RUG:  The Library will be having a new rug installed beginning September 23 – October 5 so we will be closed approximately for 2 weeks. Phones will not be operating, there will be no holds or pickups or programs scheduled during this renovation.  If you are planning on placing holds on materials, please plan accordingly.  We have a lot of preparation to do before the installation so you will begin seeing things moved around in August and September. There will be no programs scheduled for adults and children until we are able to put things back where they belong after the installation.

The Navigating Hope Van and Hope One will be at the Church of the Nazarine on the following dates: 8/9, 10/11 and 12/13 from 10:00am – 2:00pm if anyone is interested.

The Palace Project

We are pleased to announce the statewide roll out of the Palace Project, a new digital library service by and for libraries that offers access to free eBooks and audiobooks in one easy-to-use app. Through the Palace app, library users have access to over 20,000 items curated by the Digital Public Library of America and the New Jersey State Library. Users can access the Palace app on their preferred mobile device or tablet via download from the Apple or Google Play stores. All you need is your library card!

The process for signing up is completely self-contained within the Palace app, and will require only an email address and authentication through geolocation (anywhere in NJ).  For more detailed instructions from Palace, click here.
