Inter-Library Loans

Maplewood Library is now a member of BCCLS, the Bergen County Cooperative Library System, a consortium of 75 public libraries in northern New Jersey with a shared catalog.  You may place requests for any of the more than 5 million items available within the system.

If  the item you wish to borrow cannot be found within the BCCLS system, we can attempt to borrow it through Inter-Library Loan.  Items published within the last six months cannot be borrowed through Inter-Library Loan.  If your request is for a new item, you may wish to request that we purchase it.

Inter-Library Loans may be requested at the library service desks, or online through the New Jersey State Library’s JerseyCat Inter-Library Loan System. You may request up to five Inter-Library Loans per week.

Please note that JerseyCat has updated its software to a new version.  Internet Explorer 8 and 9 will not work with the new software; please use Firefox, Chrome, or Apple Safari.
