Newark Public Library - Read Learn Know Grow
We recommend the use of face masks at all Newark Public Library locations.

As of Wednesday, January, 19th, NPL’s stack building will be closed for the next 2 weeks!
Current book selections are still available in our lobby, La Sala Hispanoamericana, the LGBTQ room, the James Brown African American Room and of course – the Teen’s area and Children’s room. Now is a great time to get acquainted with our E-Books!!
NPL offers both Hoopla and Libby, which provides patrons access to hundreds of eBooks, audio books, comics, magazines, movies, TV and even music! All for FREE with your library card!!
Need some help getting started? Please visit your local library or call 973.733.7779 and our librarians will be happy to walk you through the process!
Keep Calm and Carry on Using the Library! Happy Reading!
