The Bergenfield Library is offering curbside pickup, Mondays – Thursdays 10 AM–8 PM and Fridays 10 AM-4 PM.
Making an Appointment
To reserve items for Library pickup, please place a hold through the Library’s online catalog. Requests may also be done via phone – 201-387-4040 option 2 for adult materials and option 3 for children’s materials. Please wait until you receive a notification from the Library that your holds are ready.
Time slots will be in 2 hour windows. Customers should report to Anderson Avenue side of the building and call 201-387-4040 option 0. The Library itself will remain closed.
Items will be tagged in a disposable bag that does not need to be returned to the Library. Your library card # will be confirmed prior to pickup. Please take only your materials. Do not touch other materials. If you have questions or concerns, or have missed your pickup time, please call 201-387-4040 option 0 to discuss and/or reschedule. For the safety of all, staff will not interact with customers onsite.
Please observe social distancing guidelines, keeping a minimum of six feet between yourself and others. If someone is in the area when you arrive, please wait until they leave before entering.
Materials and Holds
Library materials will be quarantined for three days after being returned, therefore, items will take longer to become available. Due to material quarantines, you may receive overdue notices after returning your items. Please disregard––the Library will not assess late fines. Customers will be able to reserve up to 10 items per pick up per card.
