1920s Community Read
From Monday, February 01, 2021
To Wednesday, March 31, 2021


That's right, the New Providence Library was founded 100 years ago, in 1921. To help celebrate our Centennial, we're doing a Roaring Twenties Community Read for this year!

Head to our Community Read page to browse through curated lists of books for every age group either set during the 1920s or about this swanky decade!

We'll be reading all through February and March. Once you've read a book you think is the bee's knees, be sure to share why you think it's swell with friends and neighbors. Let's read, share and chat all about the Roaring Twenties!

Signs of life!

As the snow begins to melt, we see positive signs of brighter days ahead.  Infection rates in town continue to drop and the COVID Committee of the Board of Trustees continues to monitor virus progress in the community.  We have been meeting regularly to evaluate whether conditions are right for re-opening.  As always, the safety of our patrons and staff is of prime importance. 

We are happy to announce that we will once again open to computer use by appointment on Monday, 3/1.  As before, we ask that you make an appointment for a 45 minute slot at least the day before and we will not take advance appointments beyond 1 week.  Social distancing requirements only allow us to make 2 computers available. 

We look forward to safer conditions as vaccinations proceed and will continue to update you as our re-opening plans progress.
