Library Book Drop Is Open

Thank you to all patrons who held on to their library materials during the public safety closure period. In anticipation of offering onsite services, we now encourage you to return the books and media you have checked out to the book drop, located on the library’s front porch. The items will remain on your account during a 72-hour sanitary quarantine period and fines will be waived. Please note: We are not able to accept book donations at this time. Thank you to the greater Allendale community. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Introducing Porch Pickup

Beginning June 22, Lee Memorial Library launches PORCH PICKUP, a contactless system to borrow materials such as books, magazines, and DVDs, while prioritizing the safety of our patrons and staff.

New requests can be placed via the library catalog, or email at, or by phone at 201.327.4338 ext.2. Requests are limited to 20 children’s items per household and 10 adult items per card, per week. You will receive notification via email, text, or phone when the item is ready for pickup. Then come to the library. Wearing a mask, approach the front door (keeping social distance if others are queued). Show your library card. Your requested items will be placed on the table for takeaway.
