Borrower's Services

Getting a Library Card

Morristown & Morris Township Residents

Morristown and Morris Township residents are entitled to a library card. Just bring in a document, such as a valid driver’s license or utility bill, with your name and address to get your card. (If you bring in a utility bill it must have been received within the last two months.) Your card is good at all libraries in Morris County (MAIN-Morris Automated Information Network), Open Borrowing libraries and MUF libraries.

People Who Work in Morristown

People who work in Morristown and do not live in Morris County may also get a card. You must bring in a document, like a pay stub, that shows your name and work address. You will also need documentation that shows your home address. Bernards Township residents may use their cards at all Morris County libraries. Some towns in Northern NJ have borrowing agreements with us. Please check with our Circulation Department to see if your town participates.

Student/Nanny Memberships

Morristown students who do not live in Morris County and nannies living with a Morristown or Morris Township family are entitled to cards. You must show proof that you go to school or work here.

County College of Morris Students

CCM students can use their CCM student ID as their card after filling out a Morristown & Morris Township registration card.

My Account

From your Patron Account you can see and manage different aspects of your personal account. You can see what items you have checked out and when they are due, renew items, see what you have on hold and remove holds you no longer want. To access your Patron Account you must go to the log on section of our Library Catalog  and log on with your library card number and pin.

Holds

Holds may be placed on any material listed in our online catalog. To do this you must go to our Library Catalog. When you locate the material you want there will be an option labeled Place Request. Choose Place Request and you will be prompted for your library card number and pin. If you want to request materials that are not in the catalog you must request an Interlibrary Loan.

Interlibrary Loan

Items that do not appear in our catalog may be ordered through our Interlibrary Loan Department. Please click here to fill out a request form. We will search all libraries in New Jersey and then outside NJ to try and locate a title for you. Sometimes, a fee may be involved. If you would like to search all NJ Libraries yourself and place your own request you may do so through Jersey Cat, which provides access to the catalogs of all participating NJ Libraries. Please ask at Reference if you need help or have questions about requesting an Interlibrary Loan.

Renewals

Materials may be renewed by phone, in person or through this website by accessing your Patron Account. Go to our Library Catalog, choose Patron Account and log on with your library card number and pin. Items may be renewed only twice. We will not renew items that have holds.

Returning Materials

Materials may be returned to any library in Morris County or any Open Borrowing or MUF library.

Open Borrowing

Open Borrowing is a reciprocal borrowing program for library patrons to borrow in-person from among more than 150 public libraries in northern New Jersey. For details visit the Open Borrowing Website.

MUF

MUF stands for Morris Union Federation and it is a small consortium of four libraries outside of Morris County that do not participate in Open Borrowing and several MAIN (Morris Automated Information Network) libraries that have agreed to share resources with those libraries. The four libraries outside of MAIN are Bernardsville, New Providence, Summit and Berkeley Heights. The MAIN libraries that share resources with those libraries are The Morristown & Morris Township Library, Library of the Chathams, Madison Library, Long Hill Township Library, and Bernards Township Library.
