New Location...Even Better Service

Franklin Branch is moving!  On June 22nd the Freeholders approved a purchase agreement on a building in Greenwich Township (Route 519) that will become our branch in the southwest corner of the county.  The new facility is a welcomed solution to space issues at the Franklin Branch which is located in the Warren County Technical School.

"Our library use continues to grow, " says library director Maureen Wilkinson.  " We have more visits to the library than ever--396,778 in 2015!   We are evolving and adding new services such as technology training.  We are partnering with the NJ Department of Labor and Workforce Development to provide specialized job assistance, and we are developing STEM/STEAM and Maker programming to support lifelong/community centered learning.  This new facility will have a meeting room and more places where people can come together as a community to learn and share ideas and skills. "

"We look forward to serving our residents in the southern part of our service area and are grateful to the Freeholders for their support of the library" 

National Dance Day!

Join us at Headquarters Branch to celebrate National Dance Day on Thursday, July 28.  We'll be performing and videotaping an easy dance routine that will be posted to Facebook and YouTube pages.  National Dance Day was created in 2010 by The Dizzy Feet Foundation in conjunction with the TV show So You Think You Can Dance.  People all over the country will be participating, so come to the library and strut your stuff!  No registration is necessary.  Children and minors under the age of 18 will need to have a parent or guardian sign a permission slip the day of the event.
