Revision of Interlibrary Loan from August 2, 2012 - 3:12pm

If we do not have the item(s) that you want, we may be able to  borrow it from another library through Interlibrary Loan. 



Residents and Courtesy Card holders may borrow books through the BCCLS system. Requests can be placed online, via telephone, or in-person at the Library. Residents have walk-in priviedges at all BCCLS libraries. Most requests take a minimum of three days to be filled. BCCLS has many useful features to customize your library experience.

Open Borrowing

Open borrowing provides walk-in privileges to West Caldwell residents at over 150 participating libraries throughout New Jersey. Only West Caldwell residents are eligible for enrollment in open borrowing.

Patrons from other libraries with a HRLC or OPEN sticker on their library cards may borrow items from the West Caldwell Public Library. Open borrowing patons cannot check out rental movies. All reserves must be placed through the patron's home library. The West Caldwell Public Library cannot reserve or interlibrary loan an item for non-resident open borrowing patrons.
