WARREN, NJ - Beginning Monday, Nov. 11, the Warren Township Library, a branch of the Somerset County Library System, will close for approximately four weeks for needed painting and renovations, including the women’s public restroom.
“You know how disruptive it is to paint your house?” System Director Brian Auger said. “This is much worse, as all the wall-mounted shelving and the books on them, have to come down first. We are very sorry for the inconvenience, but could not find any other way to get the work done quickly and safely.”
As a result of the areas being renovated and painted, and the fact that there will be no staff in the building, the book drop will be closed. Materials can be returned to any SCLS branch; the closest branches are Watchung, North Plainfield, Bound Brook and Bridgewater. Staff has been advising patrons to change the pick-up location for their holds to a nearby branch or to freeze them until Dec. 7.
The following programs will take place at the Warren Court Room, next to the library:
Saturday, Nov. 16 at 2 p.m.“Meeting Eleanor Roosevelt” portrayed by actress Linda Kenyon.
Monday, Nov. 18 at 6:30 p.m. Parent/Teacher Program—Let the Brain Games Begin! Toys and Games to Boost your Brain Power.
Wednesday, Nov. 20 at 7 p.m. Identity Theft, presented by Kevin Lynch, from the Society of Financial Awareness.
Saturday, Nov. 23 at 2 p.m. The Music of the British Invasion, performed by the group “Carnaby Street!” led by Chris Roselle.
Wednesday, Dec. 4 at 7 p.m. Teen Program –Finding Truth in YA Fiction—A Panel of YA Authors.
Registration is open for these programs through the library website or by calling (908) 754-5554.
Staff anticipates welcoming the community back on Saturday, Dec. 7.
