You may request an interlibrary loan using JerseyCat. Be sure to type your library card barcode number in the appropriate field when placing your request. 

You may also contact the library and ask us to place your interlibrary loan request.

Interlibrary loan is only available for:

  • items published at least 6 months ago
  • items not owned by the New Providence Memorial Library  
  • New Providence residents only

There is a limit of 3 interlibrary loans per resident, at any point in the ILL process. Interlibrary loans usually take 10 days to two weeks to arrive. You will be notified by e-mail when your loan arrives, or by phone if you do not have an e-mail address.

Borrowing at Other Libraries

You may use your New Providence library card in person at certain other libraries in New Jersey listed below. 

  • Take your library card and photo ID with you. 
  • Check the expiration date on your card. If expired, it must be renewed at NPML before visiting the other library.
  • Pay NPML fines and return overdue books to NPML before visiting the other library.
  • Borrowing restrictions may apply at the other library.
  • Items borrowed at other libraries must be returned to that library, not NPML.

We look to the Spring sky..

for hope, renewal and daylight.  Here at NPML, we reflect those feelings with a new, virtual Art Gallery and a re-opening of our Browsing Section.

The Friends of NPML have collected beautiful photos posted over the past year on the NP Community Facebook page.  Lynn O'Neill & Bharat Rao have shown us beauty in the sky over our town and in the process, inspired those feelings of hope and renewal.  Visit the Art Gallery and view other exhibits, too.

Finally, our Browsing Section has re-opened!  Come in to peruse our shelves for new materials.  There are selections of popular items as well as a display of books from AfterWords - our bookstore.  Computers by prior appointment are also available.  As ever, we are strictly enforcing social distancing, capacity, mask and other restrictions. 

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