Contactless doorside pickup of library materials is available during the above hours of operation.

To get started:

  1. Place a Hold. Reserve up to (20) items for contactless doorside pickup at the library online through the BCCLS catalog, or by calling the Reference Department (for Adult books) at 201-837-4171 ext 2 or the Youth Services Department (for Children and Teen books) at 201-837-4171 ext 4. The fastest service will be to reserve items online through the catalog. If we are not able to answer your call due to high call volume, please leave a message. Or let us surprise you! Fill out a brief form and we’ll select books for you based on your preferences.
  2. Notification. Wait to receive a notification when your items are ready for pickup.
  3. Schedule Pickup. Login with your library card number and pin to see your items that are available for pickup. Select the next available date/time and complete scheduling. Or Park and Call. If you are unable to schedule your pickup you can still call 201-837-4171 ext 0 from the parking lot and have your items prepared for pickup.
  4. Collect Items. Your items will now be available in the library vestibule on the cart marked scheduled pickup or phone pickup depending on your pickup method. Please observe 6-feet social distance from other patrons and wait for your turn to step into the library vestibule. Once in the vestibule you can collect your items and leave.
