Alpha Public Library premieres
"Friday Afternoon at the Movies"...
 MARCH 27 @ 3:00PM BIG HERO 6 
 APRIL 10 @ 3:00PM Boxtrolls
 The latest releases will be available at the Public Library's big screen two Friday afternoons each month at 3 p.m. with "Friday Afternoon at the Movies."  Registration is not necessary. Free popcorn is available. To see what movie is showing on any given Friday, check out the library's Facebook page or visit

Do you like to read books and then watch the movies made from them?
Do you like to see if they are just like the book…or…how different they can be?
Then this club is for you!    What will we do?
Read one book about every month and then meet and watch the movie on the library's big screen!
Then we can see what everyone liked best! The book or movie?  Was it similar or different?
If interested, please sign up at the library.  We will contact you with our first meeting date info!

Tax Forms and Assistance 

The IRS is strongly encouraging taxpayers to file their returns online. They have drastically reduced the number of forms sent to libraries and other outlets.  For the 2014 filing year, the library has been sent a LIMITED amount of ONLY the following three forms: 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ.   We also have a notebook of forms that patrons can use for photocopying. No instruction booklets are available.

Please note that the state of New Jersey has not provided libraries with paper copies of any state income tax forms for the last several years. 

Library staff can assist you with printing forms at a cost of 20 cents per page.

You can order federal tax forms by calling 1-800-829-3676.

The following links will allow you to download forms and instructions:

Minute-To-Win-It at Alpha Public Library coming this Spring.....

We're trying a new program. We are going to have a game contest using the games on the NBC show Minute-To-Win-It.   These are all games that can be done with household materials.  (We need donations for the bulk of the materials.)

Each game has rules on the NBC site, so there are no questions.  We found a nice count-down clock online to project on our big screen. 

Games we have selected so far are:



Copying / Printing / Faxing / Scanning

                                      $1.00/page faxes.

        Color ($.75/page) and Black and white ($.15/page) copies.

Color ($.50/page) and black and white ($.20/page) laser printer.

          2 Early Literacy Stations

The Early Literacy Stations are kid-friendly computers in the Youth Area. Engaging and educational games designed for children aged 2-8 are available.


Wireless Internet (WiFi)

A free wireless network is available throughout the library.

           *5 new computers for public use*
