WOODLAND PARK, NJ - As part of the Borough of Woodland Park team, the staff at the Alfred H. Baumann Free Public Library is working hard for the residents through this difficult time. The staff is available Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. to answer your questions and help with digital materials. Even if you just need to hear a friendly voice – just give a call at 973-345-8120.
The Library also installed a “chat” feature on its website that is available between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. The staff has been working hard to provide residents with helpful resources on its website, social media and its YouTube Channel. You will find fun story times, crafts, DIY, and much more for all ages.
Each week, the librarians and staff have created a virtual library called “Welcome to Library Land.” Each day there will be fun activity scheduled at 11 a.m. and a story time at 2 p.m. and twice a week there will be something for tweens and teens on Mondays and Thursdays at 7 p.m. Although these are scheduled posts, they can be viewed at any time that fits into your day. Look for special guests from the community sharing their talents and skills.
“We are here for each and every one of you," said Library Director Linda Hoffman. "We miss seeing you in person, but we are here for you in every other capacity.”
The Library offers digital materials from Hoopla, Overdrive/Libby, RBdigital magazines, Tumblebooks for kids, World Book Encyclopedia, Pronunciator, Rosetta Stone and much more. Residents that do not currently have a Library card may apply for a temporary card at https://www.abwplibrary.org. This will allow access to all digital resources. Mrs. Hoffman also wants to remind residents to complete their Census form. If residents have questions, call the Library at at 973-345-8120.
