Empire Pass Is Here!

Posted by mcorreia on

The library has purchased an Empire Pass and you can borrow it with your library card!

According New York State Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, “The Empire Pass is your key to all-season enjoyment at New York State Parks. It provides unlimited day-use vehicle entry to most facilities operated by New York State Parks and the State Dept. of Environmental Conservation including forests, beaches, trails and more.”

The library’s Empire Pass can be checked out on your library card for one week.  It is available on a first-come, first-served basis, can be used once per quarter per household, and can be reserved ahead of time if you’re planning an outing.

Enjoy the outdoors and fabulous parks in our beautiful state, complements of the Newark Public Library!

The library is looking to the future and we need your help! We are creating a strategic plan that will help us plan for the future and meet the needs of the Newark community. We will be convening community focus groups next month to talk about our community and the library. Please reach out to me at newarklibrarydirector@owwl.org if you’d like to be included in a focus group.

We are also gathering information about how people use this library and if we are meeting your needs. To help us, you can fill out a brief survey by clicking this link:

National Library Week Brings Exciting News

Posted by mcorreia on

This year, National Library Week is April 8 – 13.  In celebration, we are kicking off Library Fines Amnesty Month, and we’re giving everyone a fresh start!  Come to library to return your overdue materials any time from April 8 through May 8, and you don’t have to pay any overdue fines.

Don’t have any overdue books or movies?  That’s OK, because we want you to have a fresh start, too.  Just stop by any service desk and we will forgive your old overdue fines, no matter how old they are.

So come in, let us forgive your fines, and get that library card back in action!

“Kids & Teens Read Free” also starts during National Library Week.  Anyone 18 or younger can borrow books without worrying about overdue fines – there won’t be any!  In an effort to remove barriers to reading, we are eliminating overdue fines on books for kids and teens.  Many thanks to the library board for supporting this change, and the Friends of the Library for helping to make it financially possible.
