COVID-19 Information

Due to the Continuing Health and Safety Concerns Surrounding Coronavirus

(COVID-19) the Mount Arlington Public Library is offering Curbside Pickup.

The Mount Arlington Public Library has been offering curbside pick-up for books and other materials since Tuesday, June 16, 2020. This was our first step to eventually being able to fully reopen the library and fully resume library services. On Monday, July 6, 2020 the MTA Library has increased curbside pickup hours. We are open for curbside pickup Monday through Friday from 10:00am to 4:00pm and Saturday from 11:00am to 2:00pm for the convenience of our patrons.

During this time only books and materials from the Mount Arlington Public Library will be available for requests and borrowing.  The delivery service that enables inter-library loans with other Morris County libraries is currently suspended.  

When your request is ready, we will contact you and arrange a time for you to pick up your materials. 
The items, which will be checked out to you prior to your visit, will then be placed on a book cart under the library’s front porch where you can pick them up.

Our book drop has been open since Tuesday, June 16, 2020.  Books and other library materials must be returned to the book drop at the MTA Library. During this phase, you can borrow books/materials from our library by:

1. Telephoning the library at (973) 398-1516 to request materials.

2. Placing a hold on materials through the library catalog at

We recommend checking the availability of a book and other materials through the online catalog before contacting the library.
