Computers, seating available at Montclair library branches starting Thursday
The Montclair Public Library has announced that public computers and seating will be available at both of its locations, the main library at 50 S. Fullerton Ave. and the Bellevue Avenue branch located at 185 Bellevue Ave., starting Thursday, July 29.
According to the library's website, computer sessions are 30 minutes with one 30-minute extension. Printing will be available with a fee. Scanning is free.
The main library is open for limited in-person services and curbside pickup is still available by appointment.
In June, the month, the Bellevue Library branch reopened with limited capacity after Township Council members agreed to boost their original draft of a 2021 budget for the library by $100,000 — a compromise measure they said was contingent on getting the branch in Upper Montclair back in service. The branch is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The main library branch is currently hopen weekdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and noon to 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
The main branch opened its second and third floors for browsing for the first time since the start of the pandemic on July 16. Hours for browsing on those floors will be Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to noon and 3 to 5 p.m., and Tuesday from noon to 2 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m., according to a library email.
Additional hours and services will be added in the coming weeks, officials have said.
