RED BANK, NJ: The latest news from the Red Bank Public Library:

  • The library was alerted to a situation related to the pandemic, and as a result, the library will be closed until cleaning is complete. This is out of an abundance of caution: No one at the library has tested positive for COVID-19. This means:
    • Curbside services are suspended
    • Bookdrops are closed
    • Due dates are extended
  • We will reopen as soon as possible! In the meantime, we are still offering virtual programming and our 24-hour library.
  • Given last week's tropical storm and the accompanying power outages, we have set up charging stations on the library's front and back porch. We also have free WiFi available in the parking lot and on the back picnic tables. These charging stations are still available in spite of the closure, and the WiFi is still on.
