Newark Library Hours

The Newark Library is pleased to announce new hours of service. Beginning January 5, 2015 the Library will be open Mondays rather than Fridays in order to better serve the residents of Newark.

Our new hours mean that we will be able to offer more programs to serve the school-age youth in our Homework Help Center, Homework Express.  Homework Express will be expanding its hours to include Monday programs in February.  Also, being open at noon on Mondays and Tuesdays will allow for more quiet study time for the public.

Newark Library is located at 6300 Civic Terrace Avenue in Newark. Its friendly staff may be reached by phone at 510-284-0675. The hours of operation are:

  • Monday:              12:00 PM – 8:00PM
  • Tuesday:             12:00 PM – 8:00PM
  • Wednesday:      10:00 AM – 6:00PM
