PISCATAWAY, NJ – The Piscataway Public Library invites all township residents to find the library at their place by visiting the website piscatawaylibrary.org to access virtual services and resources.

While the library’s physical spaces may be temporarily closed due to COVID-19, community members can discover ebooks, movies, video games, online story times and much more — all from home.

April 19-25, 2020 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the valuable role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. This National Library Week, community members can show their appreciation and support for Piscataway Public Library by visiting their website, following them on social media and using the hashtag #NationalLibraryWeek.

This week, in honor of National Library Week, the Library would also like township residents to play along with their #NationalLibraryWeek Bingo by filling out a library from home bingo card and emailing it to library@piscatawaylibrary.org by Friday, April 24, to be entered to win a $25 Amazon gift card.

The original theme for National Library Week, “Find your place at the library,” was chosen months ago before the emergence of a global pandemic would force libraries to close their buildings. In response to our rapidly-changing times, the theme was revised to “Find the library at your place” to bring attention to how libraries are open for business online, offering the electronic services and digital content their communities need now more than ever.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries of all types across the country each April.
