In response to the COVID-19 situation, the Mayor, Council and Borough officials, in partnership with the Trustees of the Cliffside Park Free Public Library have decided to close the library, effective 3/13/2020, until further notice. All programs and meetings are cancelled.

We ask you to hold on to your materials and not use our book drops. They will be locked. We will not be charging any fines during the closure. Patrons will also not be able to request physical items during this time. All materials currently out will be changed to come due in two weeks.
More information can be found at

We recognize the central role of the library in our community and the difficult decision to close down. However, we have determined that the best way to serve our patrons right now is to help minimize the spread of COVID-19.

Remember you can partake in any number of our online offerings. Links on our homepage.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time.
