Non-Resident Library Use Policy

  1. Non-residents over the age of eighteen who can submit evidence of full-time employment in the Borough of New Providence are eligible for a free borrowing card, with privileges to borrow materials from the New Providence Memorial Library, subject to annual re-registration. The privileges of the Non-Resident borrowing card are limited to materials in the New Providence Library.  The card is not valid at any other library.
  2. Taxpaying non-residents must submit proof of residence in New Providence for at least six months of the year to be eligible for a resident card. Lacking this qualification, the non-resident fee must be paid.
  3. Non-residents who do not hold a resident card from a library with which New Providence Memorial Library has a reciprocal borrowing agreement may obtain a non-resident borrowing card with a fee of $35.00, to be renewed annually.
  4. Cardholding patrons of libraries with which New Providence Memorial Library has a formal reciprocal borrowing agreement may enjoy borrowing privileges free of charge as long as that agreement is in effect.
