The Newark Library will close on Wednesday, March 31 to prepare for the move to the new library building this summer. March 15 is the last day to place holds for pickup at the Newark Library. Members can pick up their existing holds by March 31.
The closure is necessary as we prepare for the following:
- Allocating staff time to coordinate the move
- Stabilizing, packing up, and relocating the Newark Library collection
While the Newark Library is closed, you can continue to use our online services and place holds for pickup at other library locations.
Starting April 21 our Mobile Library will provide service at Schilling Elementary School in Newark on Wednesdays twice a month, from 10:30-12:30 pm. Dates for stops at Schilling Elementary School will be available soon on our Mobile Library schedule.
We appreciate your patience and support while we prepare for the move and look forward to welcoming you to our new library this summer.
