As of January 1, 2015, BCCLS will no longer be participating in the open borrowing program.

What does that mean for you?

If you have a library card from Pals Plus Library, you will no longer have borrowing privileges at BCCLS libraries through the open borrowing program.

You will, however, still have borrowing privileges at other Open Borrowing partner libraries:

Pals Plus, the consortium of Passaic County Libraries

Main, the consortium of Morris County Libraries

LMxAC, the consortium of Middlesex County Libraries

Sussex County Library

Warren County Library

Sparta Public Library

Hackettstown Public Library

If you are a BCCLS cardholder, you will no longer have borrowing privileges at Pals Plus through the Open Borrowing program.

BCCLS cardholders who work in Passaic County may be eligible for courtesy cards. Please ask at the Passiac County library where you work.

We thank BCCLS for the many years of generous Open Borrowing  with Pals Plus and the other partners.
