New Hours at the Library.

We hope you are enjoying Summer Reading at the Library...we always enjoy the special activities that we are able to offer when school is not in session and we can help keep kids learning and reading!

This year, when school starts, we will make some changes. After Labor D ay, September 6, 2016, we will have new hours of operation that are uniform across the library system: Monday to Thursday 9am to 9pm; Friday 9am to 6pm; and Saturday we will be open from 10am to 4pm. By agreement with the Warren County Technical School, our Franklin branch will continue to open to the public at 1pm Monday through Friday.

Closing a little later will make it easier for people to come in after dinner, and we can start weekday programs a bit later—we know that rushing to come to a program sometimes can make an evening a bit hectic. We like to provide consistent service, so having uniform hours of operation makes sense.

There will be many changes coming to the Warren County Library and we hope that we can help all of our members benefit from them.

Find Rosetta Stone at the Library!


No, not the original Rosetta Stone that provided the key to unlocking ancient hieroglyphics, but Rosetta Stone language software.

Rosetta Stone has been the standard for learning a new language for over 20 years and has recently been made available to public libraries. Using a proven system to teach that immerses the student in the language you will can access 50 hours of language instruction. Learning is structured around core lessons to build reading, writing and speaking skills.

Available for PC, Mac, or as an app for mobile use, you can learn wherever you are. To use Rosetta Stone visit our library website . You will find the link to Rosetta Stone under the Research Tab (A-Z Databases/JerseyClicks). If you need assistance accessing Rosetta Stone, call our reference desk at 908-475-6321.
Since Rosetta Stone uses voice recognition software, you will need a microphone to complete the exercises. Mobile apps can be downloaded from Google Play, Amazon apps, and iTunes App Store.

If you currently use “Mango” language learning software through our library, you can continue with your lessons until the end of the year when our subscription ends.
