Effective, Monday, March 16, both Piscataway Public Library locations will be closed to the public to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).  We understand the impact this may have on the community.  We believe this is the responsible action to take. We are currently scheduled to be closed through Saturday, March 21, but this is a quickly changing situation. We will provide notice of our reopening on our website, social media channels, and through our email newsletter.

Here is what you need to know:
  • All events scheduled to take place at either Library location are cancelled through Wednesday, April 15.
     
  • No overdue fees will be charged for items that may be due during the period we are closed, but book drops will be open.  
     
  • Staff will be available to provide help via phone and email.  Please feel free to reach out if you have questions or need help from our staff.  
     
  • We have a variety of electronic resources you can access from home, including ebooks, audiobooks, magazines, movies, and music.  You can even work on your language skills.
     
  • Brainfuse offers homework help, test preparation, resume review and more, at no cost to you.  
We encourage you to turn to reliable, accurate information about the virus from reputable sources.  

Additional information to help understand coronavirus and the public health situation can be found in the following articles: We wish you well during this time and look forward to welcoming you back soon.  
 

Why we're closing: 

With the emergence of the COVID-19 virus, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend discontinuing large gatherings.  Doing so can slow the rate of transmission, lowering the number of active cases at one time.  This can help us avoid overwhelming the healthcare system.  For a more detailed explanation, please visit flattenthecurve.com.
