Interlibrary Loan

To request an interlibrary loan, search for the item you would like in the catalog and place a hold.  The item you placed on hold will be delivered to New Providence and you will receive a notification when it arrives. 

If the item you would like does not appear in the search results, scroll to the bottom of the search result page and click Search JerseyCat:

Librarians are happy to place a JerseyCat request on your behalf.  If you wish to place the JerseyCat request yourself, you will need to log in to JerseyCat with your library card barcode number and PIN (last 4 digits of your barcode) before requesting the item.  

If it's a new item, you may suggest it for purchase for the New Providence library collection.

Interlibrary loan is available for New Providence residents only. Nonresidents may request interlibrary loans by calling or emailing their hometown library.

Borrowing at Other Libraries

You may use your New Providence library card in person at many 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.
  • If the library is not part of MAIN Library Alliance, you will need to return borrowed items to that library, not NPML.
  • Call ahead to see if they have the item you are interested in.

Welcome to your NEW New Providence Memorial Library!

If you haven't visited us lately, be sure to come in and experience all that has changed. Our new layout has something for everyone. Browse our new displays, choose your favorite spot to cozy up and read, or sit down to work. Explore our expanded catalog now that we're part of the MAIN Library Alliance. You can request materials in our online catalog from any member library to be delivered here for you to pickup, if we don't have what you need in house. 

We are thrilled to be FINE FREE in an effort to encourage you to come back and keep borrowing. Your library card is your key to all free subscriptions, online resources, and digital materials, too. So get your library card and make a note of your barcode number!

Come discover, collaborate and connect with Your Library this winter and all year long. Visit our Calendar for our program schedule. Join us!

We look forward to seeing you here,

~ Stacey Maisch, Library Director
