The Library offers many services to Piscataway K-12 schools, pre-schools and daycare centers. We can supplement your classroom instruction and host special programs to engage your students at the library. You can schedule a class visit to the library for:
-Presentations on useful databases and homework help resources
-And special programs that supplement your classroom instruction
If you can’t leave the classroom, we are more than willing to come to you for presentations on special topics or to show you and your students how to use specific library resources. We are also available for book talks and special story times.
If you live in a town that already has a reciprocal borrowing relationship (listed above), you can use that library card at either of our branches. Otherwise:
Piscataway employees must show proof of their home address, employment, and the Piscataway address of their place of employment (pay stub, letter signed by supervisor on letterhead). Piscataway Township municipal government employees (including municipal government employees, Piscataway Board of Education employees, employees of the Piscataway Vo-Tech school) who do not live in Piscataway are entitled to the same borrowing privileges as Piscataway residents. Municipal employees still must provide proof of their home address, proof of employment, and the physical address of their place of employment.
Piscataway students must provide proof of their home address, and proof of Piscataway school enrollment with the name and Piscataway address of the school. (Rutgers University students who cannot provide a Piscataway address should apply for a library card with New Brunswick Free Public Library.)
PRESCHOOL BOOK DELIVERY SERVICE:
Piscataway Public Library offers a monthly delivery of an assortment of picture books to each of the nursery schools and day care centers in Piscataway. Participation in the Preschool Outreach Book Delivery service entitles your facility to a monthly delivery of a bag of approximately twenty picture books for you to share with the children in your care. These books would be dropped off to your facility and then picked up during the next month and a new selection of books would be dropped off. If your facility is interested in participating in this service, please contact us using the information listed below.
