The Burlington County Library reopened its doors on Sept. 21 to the public to offer regular walk-in hours for customers eager to safely browse our collections, pick-up items on hold and check out materials on site.

Customers will continue to have access to public computers, for which appointments are suggested, but not required. In-person library card signups and renewals will be available, along with copying and mobile printing services. Librarians also will be available to offer research and advisory assistance.

We’re excited to welcome you back, but we also want you to be safe! As a precaution, customers and staff are required to have their temperatures taken prior to entering the buildings, and everyone must wear masks and maintain social distance. Visitors are also encouraged to wash their hands frequently with soap and water, and limit their time with us as a courtesy to others. In addition, plexiglass has been installed at the circulation desks and hand sanitation stations are available.

Customers should continue to use the book-drops to return their library materials, Mondays through Saturdays. Please be aware that seating inside the libraries is only available to those using the computers, and meeting rooms are not currently open to the public. In addition, there are no library programs currently scheduled.
