Mahwah Public Library

 Dear Friends and Neighbors,

The health of the Mahwah community, our patrons and staff is our highest concern.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Mahwah Public Library is closed to the public on Friday, March 13, and will remain closed until further notice.

Although the library is closed to the public, we are working from home to provide services. Staff are transitioning programs and events to virtual meetings, hosting jiggly wiggly and story times for children from home, registering patrons for cards, providing access to eBooks, movies, TV series, and other online services, and answering your questions via email.  Let us know how we can help you and your family during these difficult times. 

The COVID-19 outbreak is a rapidly changing situation. Please check our website, Facebook page, social media and email newsletters for the latest updates.

Thank you,
Kurt Hadeler,

Due to the high volume of unwanted donations left in the Library's book return, it is now closed and locked.  The book return will remain closed until we reopen.  We ask that you hold onto any items you have checked out and return them when we reopen.  We are not charging fines while we are closed.

The Library is not accepting donations at this time.  Please do not leave unwanted books, magazines, encyclopedias, DVD, VHS, Betamax, 8-track tapes or other items near the book return or entrance to the Library. Any items left here will be immediately discarded.  Thank you for your cooperation.

The Mahwah Public Library is closed until further notice due to the COVID-19 outbreak (view our COVID-19 page for resources to help you navigate this crisis), we have a weatlh of great resources to keep you and your family informed and entertained.

Please keep checked out items until we reopen as the book return is closed and locked.  Do not leave items near the library entrance, anything found will be immediately discarded. No late fines will incur until we reopen.
