In light of growing concern over the spread of the COVID-19 [Corona] virus, the Rahway Public Library will be closed to the public until further notice. During this time, the library will begin the process of cleaning and sanitizing our facility. While staff will be in the building and regularly emptying our book drops, no overdue fees will be charged during our closure. Although our building will be closed, librarians will remain available to answer your reference questions via phone or email. During this time of social distancing, please make sure to avail yourself of our social media presence as well as the downloadable books, movies, and audio materials available on our website. Please check back with us as this situation develops.

RPL GOES VIRTUAL

Just because we're closed doesn't mean that we've gone away. During our mandated closure, we are still offering a number of services. From online storytimes and the other programs being live streamed from our Facebook account to the online resources, eBooks, downloadable audiobooks, and movies available from our website, the library can still be an integral part of your life! If you have any questions, need help accessing your online account, or wish to suggest a way that we can help during this time of social distancing, reach out to us at info@rahwaylibrary.org
