We are happy to announce that beginning Monday, June 29, you can once again place holds on books, movies, etc. owned by the Newark Public Library and pick them up here, either using our curbside pickup or by coming into the library – wearing a mask – and picking them up yourself.
Unfortunately, we are not able to have items sent from other libraries at this time, and have no prediction for when this may happen. The OWWL system is being very vigilant in protecting the health and safety of the library employees as well as our communities, and we do not want to be moving library materials all over the four-county area and risking possible infection from things touched by many hands.
We’re SO glad to be putting books into people’s hands again!
