(Middletown Township, NJ) – In recognition of National Library Week, Middletown Township invites all community members to "find the library at their place" by visiting the Middletown Township Public Library’s website, mtpl.org, to access MTPL@Home virtual services and resources. While the library’s physical spaces may be temporarily closed due to COVID-19, the public can discover ebooks, streaming movies, reading challenges, online storytimes and much more—all from home via mtpl.org. Check out the library’s website, Facebook page (@ MiddletownTownshipPublicLibrary) or follow us at Twitter @MiddletownPL for details about other events and activities to enjoy this week!
For example, the MTPL is highlighting three audio books that are free to download (no account or registration necessary). Visit the MTPL’s homepage and click on each book cover image to access the audio book (featured books are The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells, Little Women by Louisa May Alcott and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll).
In times of crisis, libraries respond to their community’s needs in innovative and inspiring ways. Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, libraries of all types are continuing to make a difference in people’s lives by providing free online learning resources, including resources to learn a new language while you are at home, family fun escape rooms from the comfort of your living room, and multiple ways to contact our professional library staff to help with any questions as well as information about keeping your family well and safe. At Middletown Township Public Library there are a wide array of virtual services such as Consumer Reports, virtual resume review, and personalized reading recommendations on what to read next.
National Library Week (April 19-25, 2020) is a time to highlight the valuable role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. Join us on our Facebook page Middletown Township Public Library each day for fun, informative MTPL@home events and resources.
