August 2016 Director's Message

Beat the August Heat at Newark Public Library

            The heat of August is now upon us, but fortunately your local library has many ways to cool down. 
            Firstly, we are air conditioned and serve as a designated public cooling station for anyone in need of escaping dangerously hot weather.  Of course, everyone is welcome to enjoy our air conditioned facility whenever we are open.  While you are here you can read one of our many magazines or newspapers in our comfy reading area, play a board game or Chess, or use one of our many public computers. 
            Gone are the days a librarian will yell at you for having food or drink in the library.  You can now get both while at the library.  We have a refrigerator full of cold non-alcoholic beverages, iced-coffee from Finger Lakes Coffee Roasters, and some snacks in our vending machine.  On Friday August, 26, at 3:30pm you can even buy a cold beverage and watch a live music concert by the wonderful VB Duet in our Community Room!
            Along with comfy reading spaces for adults, we have an AMAZING Children’s area.  If you have little ones and worry about them overheating outside, bring them to the library.  We have little shopping carts, bean bags, a play-room, Lego and Lego Duplo walls, computers, and many other toys to entertain them with.  And, of course, we have a smorgasbord of books. 
            Have a great end of summer and stay cool!
