SCLSNJ announces new library branch hours

Focus on better serving the community


(Somerset County, NJ: August 3, 2015) In an effort to better serve the community, starting Monday, September 14, some branches of the Somerset County Library System of New Jersey will experience new operating hours.

“We are constantly looking for ways to expand our opportunities to serve the public,” said Keith McCoy, SCLSNJ’s director of public services. “We’re pleased to be able to add hours at several of our branches, so that there are consistent opening and closing times across our branches. This follows on our initiative from two years ago to eliminate the shortened summer schedule and remain open on Saturdays all year long. Our next step is to consider opening on Friday nights, or additional Sunday hours."

SCLSNJ’s Bound Brook Memorial, Hillsborough, Manville, Mary Jacobs Memorial, North Plainfield Memorial, Peapack & Gladstone, Somerville, Warren Township and Watchung library branches’ schedule:

Monday through Thursday: 9:30 am - 9 pm

Friday and Saturday: 9:30 am - 5 pm
