As of June 1, Scotch Plains Public Library will no longer charge for weekly rentals of DVD borrowed from the Adult Room. Children’s videos remain free of charge, as has been the practice for that department. Overdue, damage, and replacement costs remain in effect.

Library Director Michelle Willis states: “We made this decision in order to make access to all the library’s movies consistent. We have a growing online collection of streaming videos for which we don’t charge. Since our library doesn’t charge for any other materials either, it makes sense to be uniform across the board.  We hope people will enjoy this small financial break.”
