Due to Governor Murphy’s Executive Order No. 107, which closes all municipal, county, and state libraries, the Denville Library is closed to the public until further notice. There will be no circulation of library materials during this time and item due dates will be automatically extended with no fines accruing.
All in-library programming is canceled until further notice, but we are holding virtual programs online for our patrons.
No previously scheduled AARP tax appointments will be held, but please don’t worry. The federal tax filing deadline has been extended to July 15th.
Please continue to check our website and social media channels, as this is a rapidly changing situation.
Stay safe and healthy! 💚
