Palisades Park Public Library is a member of the BCCLS group of 75 public libraries in Bergen, Hudson, Passaic and Essex Counties, NJ. In our own library we have more than 57,000 items available for borrowing, and through the BCCLS system, we give access to more than 3 million items through the Bergen County Cooperative Library System (BCCLS) and 10 million through OpenBorrowing of BCCLS, LMxAC, MAIN, PALS, Sussex County and Warren County. Go to BCCLS Catalog at for access to entire BCCLS collection. For an Open Borrowing participating library see the list.


The mission of the Palisades Park Public Library is to provide our public with insight to enrich mind and spirit, and encourage a lifetime love of learning.  We aim to inform, educate and enrich our community through inclusion of our diversities and commonalities.  The Library places special emphasis on guiding young people toward a love of reading and an awareness of books and other library materials as a means of satisfying their needs and interests.  The Library has a strong commitment to intellectual freedom and to freedom of access to information.

Download full digital editions of popular magazines with Zinio

Zinio is a new service in 2014. Offered through Recorded Books, Zinio for Libraries permits Palisades Park Library cardholders to download full digital editions of popular magazines. We have joined 35 other BCCLS libraries and share a common title list.

The beauty of this service is that it is unlimited. If everyone wants to download the latest issue of an available title they can do so! No waiting a week or a month. No torn out articles. No return needed. Once you download an issue it is yours until you delete it. There are No limits on borrowing either.

You will have to create a Recorded Books account using your library card barcode. After doing that, you must create an account with Zinio using the same email address. Please note: The titles that you see offered when you click through our website are the free titles provided by the library. Zinio does provide other content for a subscription fee, but that is up to you.

Zinio digital magazines may be viewed within a browser or within the Zinio App designed for iOS or Android devices.
