IMPORTANT UPDATE

Both Library Locations are now open!

The ongoing street/utility work being done near the Main Library continues, but the work on our property has been completed.  The Library is again open the following schedule:

  • Main Library: Monday through Saturday, 10am to 6pm
  • Branch Library: Sunday, Tuesday & Thursday, 12pm to 5pm

Access to the Main Library will be tricky for a while, as work continues on Highland Ave. but rest assured, we are here during the hours listed, and the library IS open and accessible, despite what Highland Ave. may look like!

PLEASE NOTE: Traffic on Highland Ave. is ONE WAY for the foreseeable future, which means that you can only access the library by approaching from the Route 77 end of our block.  Be safe and please pay attention to the flaggers and construction workers – they will let you through to the library!
