Library use updates

Recently, the mask and social distancing mandates in New Jersey have, generally, been lifted, as per Governor Murphy’s Executive Order 242.

  • The wearing of masks by vaccinated individuals is optional. 
  • Unvaccinated individuals and those under 12, who are not yet eligible to be vaccinated, should continue wearing masks.

The social distancing mandates have also been lifted, by the same executive order.  There are no longer be any restrictions on capacity. 

At this time, every other computer work station will continue to be made available.  In the event that those are all in use, the other computers may be brought into service.  Computer use time will be extended to 1 hour.  An additional hour may be granted, automatically, in 20-minute increments.

The table and seating configurations will remain the same on the first floor.  Both tables will be available to the public, but seating continues to be reduced.

Hand sanitizer and wipes will continue to be made available to the public.

Automatic Renewal service is now available to all library patrons!

We now offer courtesy Automatic Renewal service to all library patrons!

Eligible items will be automatically renewed on the day (5 AM) that they are due. Their due date will be extended for another loan period.

How will you know if this was done?  You can check your account online, or if you are currently signed up for email notifications, we’ll email you a summary of what we were able to renew and what could not be renewed.

Please note that not all items are eligible for this service.
We can’t auto-renew:

  • Items that have been requested by other patrons.
  • Items that have already reached their renewal limit.

Your library card must also be current, and in good standing.
(New! Pay your library fines by credit card from home!)
