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.

Signs of life!

As the snow begins to melt, we see positive signs of brighter days ahead.  Infection rates in town continue to drop and the COVID Committee of the Board of Trustees continues to monitor virus progress in the community.  We have been meeting regularly to evaluate whether conditions are right for re-opening.  As always, the safety of our patrons and staff is of prime importance. 

We are happy to announce that we will once again open to computer use by appointment on Monday, 3/1.  As before, we ask that you make an appointment for a 45 minute slot at least the day before and we will not take advance appointments beyond 1 week.  Social distancing requirements only allow us to make 2 computers available. 

We look forward to safer conditions as vaccinations proceed and will continue to update you as our re-opening plans progress.
