Wecome Back to the Library!

Starting September 1, children under 14 may enter the Library without an adult. We welcome the return of unattended students in 4th grade and up who wish to read, study, complete homework, attend events, or socialize after school.

We remind you that the Library requires staff and visitors, including all children over the age of two, to wear masks and observe social distancing at all times while inside the building.

Community health was a paramount consideration in this decision. Many of the Library’s patrons are young children, families, people with medical vulnerabilities, or unvaccinated. For now, the Library has chosen a cautious approach, comparable to Governor Murphy’s Executive Order 251 requiring face masks be worn in school at all times, to ensure that the Library is accessible, safe, and welcoming for all.

Students who are unable or unwilling to comply with these safety measures will not be allowed entry but are welcome to use our many contactless services, including our extensive collections of eBooks and eAudiobooks, streaming movies and music, online learning services, personalized recommendations, curbside pickup, and home delivery options.
