Please Hold On To Your Library Items

While the library building is closed during the present health crisis, please hold on to the books and other materials you borrowed. The book drop is currently closed.

Due dates have been extended and no overdue fines will accrue. There will be a grace period for returns when the library re-opens.

Temporary Library Closure

As a public safety measure during the Covid-19 pandemic, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has issued an executive order closing the library building until further notice.

Be assured that the library is “open” for electronic borrowing, online programs and more. Our staff continues to work to ensure that every Allendale resident is able to access and benefit from the services of their library.
