RED BANK, NJ:  What's happening this week at the Red Bank Public Library



  • The Interlibrary Loan has reopened! This means you can place holds in our catalog for books at other libraries in our system. A note: Not all of the libraries are allowing loans yet, so you may see an error message, and different libraries have different quarantine policies, so this process will likely take longer.
  • We are now open for browsing and computer services by appointment! Full details can be found here. 
  • Celebrating Halloween? The state Department of Health has guidelines for how to do so safely during the pandemic you can view here.
  • Families with income of up to $150,000 a year are eligible for tuition assistance. Learn more here.



Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all events will be held virtually until further notice.


  • Zoom Story Time is on Wednesday mornings! Miss Sira will be doing Story Time live over Zoom at 10:30 AM on Wednesday, and will be posting a recording of it to YouTube and Facebook Thursday at 10:30 AM. Register for this week's Story Time here.
  • Wednesdays at 6:30 PM are Kids Crafts Night on Facebook and YouTube! This week, we're making Paint, Foil, and Felt Halloween Crafts.



  • Saturday is the Townwide Clean-up! We will be putting free garbage bags and gloves on our front porch, and will be posting a map to social media of suggested cleanup spots. Submit suggested locations at this link.
