Here’s how it works:

  1. Make an appointment by using the form below or by calling the library at 908-852-4936.  Appointments will be at the top of every hour.  Reservations can be made up to a week in advance and are on a first-come, first-served basis. If your desired time is not available, we will email you to let you know of any other appointments that may be available.
  2. On the day of your appointment, please arrive promptly; because of building capacity limits, appointments will not be extended.  A staff member will check you in when it’s time to browse.
  3. Browsing will be limited to 45-minute appointments, once per day.  Staff will be available to help you find items and make suggestions when materials you want are not available.  When the time is up, you will be directed to check out materials at the front desk only.
  4. Do you need more time?  Contact us again and we can set up another appointment for you!

All people entering the library (excluding children under the age of 2) must wear masks at all times.
