POLICIES - Registration Policy
The Palisades Park Public Library upholds the American Library Association’s Freedom to Read statement, and The Library Bill of Rights.
A valid library card must be presented at the circulation desk in order to charge out, pick up or renew library materials.
Residents of Palisades Park may apply for a free library card. Proof of residency must be shown upon application. The following are accepted forms of identification:
- Driver’s license
- Bergen County ID card
- If you do not have one of the above forms of identification you must provide one of the following documents with proof of residence:
- utility bill
- home phone bill
- tax bill
- apartment lease
Library cards from other BCCLS libraries may be used to borrow materials.
There is a $2 replacement fee for lost library cards.
Children, ages 5-17, may be issued a library card under the authority of their parent or guardian, who must present valid identification and co-sign the child’s application. The parent/guardian is ultimately responsible for the return of all library materials charged to the child’s card, and for all the fines and replacement costs incurred by the child.
