“We are waiting on the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission to approve our conversion application, which was submitted at the end of June,” Dishmen told Patch on Thursday. “As a result, we are anxious to open in Q4 of this year.”
In the meanwhile, The Library continues to hold outreach events and social justice programs, the latest of which is scheduled for the Labor Day weekend.
According to Dishmen, The Library will be giving out free school supplies at 1 Washington Street in West Orange from noon to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 2. On the following Thursday, they will be donating school supplies to students and staff at another elementary school in Essex County.
