In accordance with New Jersey Governor’s Executive Order #107, the Cliffside Park Free Public Library is closed until further notice. We recognize the central role of the library in our community. However, the Governor’s team has determined that the best way to serve our community right now, is to help minimize the spread of COVID-19.  

We ask you to hold on to your materials and not use our book drops. 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 have due dates extended accordingly. If you need to obtain a library card you can do so online. Visit to apply and read more information about due/expiration date extensions.

Remember you can borrow e-materials, partake in any number of our regular online offerings or chat with a librarian. Links on our homepage and social media pages. If you would like to receive a check-in phone please email [email protected] or call 201-945-2867 and leave a message. We will return your request with a check-in and the opportunity to discover all that is available to you while our doors are closed.

We miss seeing all of you in person but do hope that you are safe and well. Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time.
