Regional Borrowing

Maplewood Library is a member of BCCLS, the Bergen County Cooperative Library System, a consortium of 75 public libraries in northern New Jersey. You can use your Maplewood Library card at any of the member libraries,  and you may place requests for any of the more than 5 million items available within the system. Most requests are delivered within a matter of days, and you will receive an email or call when they are available .

BCCLS Member Libraries

Maplewood Library is also a member of the Reciprocal Borrowing Libraries (ReBL) group of Essex County libraries.  Limited borrowing privileges are available at most other Essex County libraries with your ReBL sticker. Get a ReBL sticker for your library card at any circulation desk. ReBL stickers must be renewed annually, and they are free of charge.

List of ReBL Libraries

Your Maplewood Library card is also accepted at an additional 80 northern New Jersey libraries through the Open Borrowing program.

Items not available in the BCCLS system may be requested through Interlibrary Loan. Enter your request online through JerseyCat, or ask for assistance at the reference or information desks.
