Closed Through June Due to COVID-19

May 13 update: The Morris County Library has canceled all scheduled in-Library programming and usage of the conference and public meeting rooms until the end of June.

We encourage patrons to visit us on Facebook and Instagram for updates and information on new virtual programming and online learning opportunities.

If you have any questions, use our feedback form to contact us. We look forward to seeing you online!

In response to the COVID-19 virus and in consultation with the Office of Health Management, a decision has been made to close the Morris County Library.

The closure is designed to help protect the high-risk populations that we serve, as well as minimize the potential exposure/transmission of the virus to all patrons and staff. The closure is temporary, but there is not a defined re-opening date at this time.

For information during this challenging time, from a Morris County perspective, please visit the county’s coronavirus webpage.

All Morris County Library materials that are currently checked out by patrons will have fines waived through June 30.  Patrons are asked to hold onto any checked out library materials for now and return them once the library has re-opened.  Again, no late fees will be charged. BOOK DROPS AT MORRIS COUNTY LIBRARY ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED.

While the Morris County Library’s mission is to remain a resource for our residents, we are closing for health and safety reasons at this time due to an abundance of caution and to be consistent with statewide recommendations for social distancing.

We appreciate our patrons’ patience and understanding.
