The Weequahic Branch Library
Located at 355 Osborne Terrace, the Weequahic Branch is a cornerstone of the city’s South Ward. It underwent an expansion and complete renovation in the early 1990s, and has more recently undergone a technology update.
The first floor houses the collections for children and adults; the second floor houses a community meeting room used by schools, day-care centers and community groups.
Staffing Weequahic are Funmi Songonuga, Sandra Jones, Shileen Shaw, Roland Garnes, Aleem Ingram and Delores Whitehead, the Western Region Branch Manager.
The Weequahic Branch is planning many exciting programs for its African-American History Month celebration:
The Branch serves as a meeting center for two literary groups: The Little/Big Readers and the South Newark Literary Society, which are facilitated by Irene Daniels. Agencies and community groups—too many to list here—also gather at 355 Osborne Terrace.
Club Success at the Weequahic Branch is unique in that Mrs. Cooper, the tutor, and the Branch staff not only work with the community children to do their homework assignments, they also assist the youngsters in presenting programs in February, June, and December.
