Dear Palisades Park Public Library Patrons,

Since our initial closure in March, we have been working hard to increase library services with the safety of the public and our staff being our number one priority. However, as COVID-19 cases are increasing quickly throughout the state, county, and within Palisades Park, the library will be reducing indoor services effective Monday, November 30.

The library will no longer be open for browsing or computer use until further notice. You may request items for doorside pick up only starting November 30.

We will continue to provide access to library materials through contactless doorside pickup of holds and requests. Staff will continue to be available to answer questions and to provide assistance over the phone or by email. In addition, the Library will continue to provide at home resources and entertainment through virtual programming, electronic resources, and streaming services.

Digital Resources Available 24/7:

·         Overdrive for eBooks and eAudiobooks (also available via the Libby app)

·         Kanopy

·         Hoopla

·         RBdigital for magazines

·         Digital New York Times

·         Brainfuse

·         Rosetta Stone from the NJ State Library

Remember these resources are FREE with your Palisades Park Library Card.

Our goal is to continue to provide access to materials and thoughtful programming while ensuring the health and well being of library patrons and library staff. We will continue to monitor the current situation and reevaluate as the situation changes.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding at this time.

Best Regards,

Katie Piano

Library Director
