Order Books, Music, Other Library Materials Beginning June 23
The Morris County Library will begin a curbside pick-up service for books, music, and other library materials starting on Tuesday, June 23, as permitted by the state’s relaxation of COVID-19 rules for all libraries in New Jersey.
Patrons will not be allowed to enter the County Library, as the state is allowing only pick/drop-off services at this time via contactless curbside delivery at a library. Patrons are asked to wear face coverings and employ social distancing when visiting the library, where employees also will greet you with face coverings.
Important: The county library will not offer inter-library loans or services at this time. That state delivery service is not currently operating and may not be back in service for some months. Therefore, patrons can only pick-up and drop-off materials from the County Library located in Hanover Township at this time.
Municipal Libraries: Municipal libraries across Morris County have differing circumstances and rules regarding the re-start of library services. You are encouraged to visit the websites of your municipal or local libraries to find out if and how they are operating curbside services.
“We are very excited to offer curbside service at the Morris County Library starting on Tuesday,” said Morris County Library Director Darren O’Neill. “As this is a new process for all of us – staff and patrons – please let us know how we’re doing. Our goal is to provide the best possible service to you given the circumstances,” added O’Neill, who offered some instructions to guide you through the process.
Starting Tuesday, June 23, the library hours will be adjusted to the following:
