Library Hours and Location

Visit our dedicated hours page for updated information on the days and times we are open: https://library.raritanval.edu/hours

This page also has a Google map of our location: we are in the front of campus, between the Theater and Somerset Hall. You cannot enter the Library from outdoors because we are on the second floor. Please use the main entrance to the College, then go up one floor. View the campus map for details: https://www.raritanval.edu/general-information/rv-at-a-glance/interactive-map. A security guard seated just inside the main entrance to the College can assist you.

Each page on the Library website has an "Ask us!" button at the top. This will take you to a live chat during Library open hours. When chat is unavailable, it will allow you to email the Library. We will respond within 1 business day.
