New: Sunday Hours at Matawan Aberdeen Library

For those of you looking to laze away a Sunday afternoon with one of the books on your summer reading list, the Matawan Aberdeen Public Library is now open from noon to 5 pm on Sundays. The library opens the rest of the week at 9 am and remains open until 9 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays; Tuesdays and Fridays until 6 pm; and Saturdays until 5 pm thru June, then until 12:30 pm for the summer. There is plenty of free parking in a dedicated lot off Broad Street, plus on-street parking where permitted along Main. (Check out the New York, Queens, and Brooklyn Public Libraries' suggested summer reading lists.)

And for young people, the libary will kick off this year's Summer Reading Club on Saturday 20 June 2009 from 10 am to 2 pm on the library's lawn, weather permitting. There will be face painting, rubber duck races, balloon animals, and a special interactive concert at 11 am. (Check out the New York Times summer reading recommendations for young readers.)

Whether you are nine or ninety, be sure to make our local library part of your personal reading program this summer.

CORRECTION: I've adjusted the hours above to show Saturday hours remain 9 am to 5 pm until 27 June 2009. The library is closed on the following Saturday for Independence Day, then Saturday summer hours begin 11 July.
