The vast majority of Library materials are currently available through contactless pickup. Learn more about how to use this  service at:

I know many of our readers are looking forward to getting back inside the Library. However, due to national demand, there is a delay in the installation of our protective plexiglass shields. The safety of our staff and patrons is our highest priority. We cannot open our doors until safety standards set by the State of New Jersey are met and the barriers are installed. We are hopeful this will happen in mid to late July. At that point, we will open with reduced capacity and limited services. Guidelines are rapidly shifting, and the library team will continue to monitor all advice and recommendations and will provide more detailed information closer to our reopening.

I understand browsing and discovery is an important part of the library experience. If you need book recommendations or assistance with any library services, please call or email the library.  One of our team members would be happy to provide you with information about our virtual services, help you select titles to suit your preferences, and place items on reserve for pickup!

We are here to help!
