Grab-and-Go Service Available at the Library Beginning July 13th! 1


The Franklin Township Public Library is happy to announce that beginning Monday, July 13th, the library will open to the public with limited services and reduced capacity for Grab-and-Go! This means that a limited number of patrons can enter the library to browse the shelves, check out and return items, and pay fines.

While we are open for Grab-and-Go, patrons:

  • Must wear masks (this is mandatory, as per State guidelines).
  • Must physically distance from staff and other patrons. Click here for a brief guide on indoor social distancing.
  • Must respect capacity limits inside the open locations.
  • Must make best efforts to limit visits to 15 minutes.
  • Must leave location as soon as selections and checkouts are complete.
