Dennis Purves

Director, Linden Public Library

We are excited to be able to open the library back to the public.  As of now our hours are Monday and Wednesday 9am-9pm, Tuesday and Thursday 9am-5pm, Friday 9:30am-5pm, and Saturday 9am-5pm.  We hope to add more hours in the near future.  We have been happy to be able to provide some level of service during the shutdown but are glad to have a regular inflow of people again.   We hope to see you soon.

We will start showing movies again starting in July.  A loyal group of viewers would come Tuesday and Friday afternoons to watch films of various genres and we hope to see them back.  If you haven’t joined us yet, please do.  The program will start up again July 13th.

Our children’s summer reading club will start up again June 28th.  We had an abbreviated version of the club last year but now it should be back to what you remember.  Sign up if interested.  We skipped the adult reading club entirely last year but now it will be back a week later. Gifts will include Barnes & Noble gift cards.  Both programs are only for Linden residents.

Our meeting rooms are again available to be reserved.  It’ll be nice to see them filled again.

Expect more programs in the near future as we get back into the swing of things.  Please check out our webpage and our Facebook page for up to date information.
