Join the NPML Online Reading Group at GoodReads.com and find out what other readers in New Providence recommend. Online discussions are held during the Adult Summer Reading program and sometimes at other times of the year. 

We have moved into Phase 3..

of our phased Re-open Plan.  On September 28, we welcomed the first patron in for a 45 minute computer appointment.  Social distancing requires us to limit public access to 2 computers and there are new procedures and restrictions.  

In spite of restrictions, allowing patrons back into the building is another step forward.  We anticipate opening up a COVID browsing library by the beginning of November with an open area for patrons of all ages to come in and browse new and selected materials from our larger collection.  Staff will be available to assist with requests and you can continue to place materials on hold for pickup.

We will continue to make foyer pickup available for those who don't want to come into the library.  Materials should still be returned into the exterior drop boxes.  You can check the complete list of instructions for more information.
