We are hosting another intellectually stimulating adult reading and book discussion program series. The themed topic is Women and the World Wars. A total of five different novels will be read during this program series. At each meeting, Joe O'Toole will lead an engaging discussion on the various responses to the conflicts, suffering, and struggles caused by direct or indirect consequences of war.
The meetings will be held in the community room of the Newark Public Library on every second Wednesday of the month, at 6:30 p.m.This is a free program, but registration is required. You can register on our website on our events calender (link below), or you can call the library at 331-4370.

If you stopped in to visit the library in the past few weeks, you noticed our many changes. We had a grand re-opening last Tuesday
to show off our new renovations, and it was a lot of fun. The library
looks like a new place: there is new carpeting, paint, and furniture,
and doorways have been taken out, which leaves more room for books,
activities, and people. We have a coffee station now, so feel free to
enjoy coffee while reading a good book in one of our new chairs!
have a lot of exciting programs and events this summer for both children
and adults. We have an adult summer reading program in addition to the
children’s summer reading program. You can find the link on our website
to sign up, read and review books, and win prizes! We offer many other
fun programs for adults including mahjong night, and an adult craft
class. You can find more info about these on our website.
Our children’s programs are extra fun this summer. We offer Movie Monday, Science Storytime on both Tuesdays and Thursdays, Teen Tuesday, Weird Science Wednesday, and Family Thursday.
You can find more information about these on our webpage as well, but
be sure to register ahead of time, as these are always full of children
who are eager to participate, and space is limited.

When you come into the library this week, you'll notice a few changes! We have started a bit of construction in the library, mostly taking out doorways to make the library feel more open. There will be more to come, including new furniture, carpeting, and paint, and we'll try our best to keep you informed throughout the process! Today in construction news: The Children's Room door and window have been torn out, as well as the door to the Teen Room and the door to the office connected to the Children's Room. What used to be an office will soon become an early literacy play space for young children!
