A Universe of Stories awaits!
Our theme this year is A Universe of Stories, and
along with the amazing STEM-oriented programs and adventurous
activities your kids will love, they'll discover that the library can be
the gateway to exploring the world and the universe.
This year, Summer Reading Club coincides with NASA's 60 years of achievement and the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing.
How does Summer Reading work?
Register. Read. Attend. Win!
Summer Reading: A Universe of Stories is as simple as that. Starting in June register for Summer Reading and pick up your reading log at the library.
Read! Every fifteen (15) minutes that you read equals one (1) picture on the reading log. You can also participate by attending library events this summer. Every event you attend equals two (2) pictures on the log.
After every one (1) hour read, return to the library with your reading log to collect a prize!

You may have heard that the Warren County Library opened a new
branch this summer on Route 519 in Greenwich Township.
What does that mean for library service to residents of Alpha?
We are happy to report that the W.H. Walters Free Public
Library will remain open for business as usual in its present location,
continuing to serve residents of Alpha as we have since 1937. You
will continue to have the same access to books, e-resources, magazines, movies, and everything else that the Library offers. As
always, there will be no fee to join the Library for residents of Alpha.
We welcome all members of the public to attend programs and use our
computers and reference material. However, to borrow materials, those
outside of Alpha will need to purchase a library card, at a cost
of $25.00 per year for an individual and $50.00 per year for a family.
We look forward to serving you for
many years to come.
Can Alpha residents use the new Warren County branch?
Yes. All public libraries open their doors to people regardless of
their residence. However, residents of Alpha who wish to borrow
materials from the new County branch will be required to purchase a card, for $38.75 for three months, $77.50 for six months or $155 for one year.
If you have any questions, comments or suggestions
about Alpha Library, please feel free to contact the Library directly at 908-454-1445 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
