The Millburn Free Public Library is a member of  the Bergen County Cooperative Library System (BCCLS). Millburn residents who are library patrons in good standing have access to materials from the collections of 70+  libraries in Essex, Bergen & Hudson counties. Materials from these libraries are available through loan requests (either through our staff or online) or through walk-in access at any of the BCCLS libraries. BCCLS loan materials are picked up at the Millburn Public Library and may be returned there or in person at any BCCLS library.

NO BCCLS LIBRARY (INCLUDING MILLBURN) CAN CHECK OUT MATERIALS TO ANYONE WITHOUT A CURRENT AND LEGITIMATE BORROWER'S CARD. So please remember to have your card available when you are using Millburn or any other BCCLS library.
