Accessibility and Equal Access

The Cliffside Park Public Library stands to provide equal access to all. The library offers designated handicapped parking spots in the municipal complex parking lot (access from Palisade Avenue). There is a ramp located near these parking spaces that leads to the ADA accessible front door. There is a handicapped accessible restroom as well as a lift to take patrons between the lower, main and loft levels. Staff is also on hand to aide in retrieving materials.
