RANDOLPH, NJ- The Randolph Township Free Public Library is committed to the safety and well-being of our community. While our building remains closed by order of the Governor, our patrons may now request Randolph Library items and pick them up outside the building. We remain fine-free through June 30. Randolph residents without a library card, should call the library for a temporary card.
Requesting Items: There are two ways to request items. 1) Call us to request up to six items per day and arrange for outside pickup. It’s important to have your library card number available when you call. We will respond to phone calls within 4 hours, if possible. We will only contact patrons if we cannot locate the item(s). 2) Place an online request for items owned by Randolph through our catalog. When an online request is ready patrons will be notified according to their profile settings, i.e., automatic phone call, email or text. All requested items will be held three days.
If help is needed in selecting an item, please call and ask to speak to a librarian. We are not receiving deliveries from other libraries at this time, so the requested items must be available in our library. Patrons interested in items available in another MAIN library, should call that library to check on their current status and their procedures. Randolph residents will not be able to place online holds on items that are owned by other libraries.
Picking Up Items: Call from the parking lot when you arrive. Materials will then be placed on the table next to the large bookdrop to left of the front door. Please practice social distancing when picking your items up.
Walk Ups: We will not be able to serve people who walk up to the library. If patrons do come to the library without pre-ordering materials, they will be asked to leave their request and contact information with the library staff.
Returning Items: Place all library returns in the outside drops. All returned items will be quarantined for at least 72 hours and will remain on your library card during that time. We are not accepting donations of materials. Please do not leave them outside the library or in our drops. Please return all Randolph items to Randolph Library since there is no transportation between libraries.
Hours of Operation: Our current hours are: Monday to Friday--9 to 5. Saturday--9 to 12, Sunday--Closed. We will be returning to our evening Summer Hours incrementally. Please check back for updates!
