Library Card Eligibility

Who is eligible?

Free library cards are available to all residents of the Borough of Mount Arlington. Resident library cards are valid for three years and may be renewed with valid ID and proof of Mount Arlington residence.

You can get a card immediately at the library with identification and proof of residence.

*During the temporary library closure issued by Governor Murphy’s Executive Order 107 whereby all Municipal, County and State public libraries, and all libraries and computer labs at public and private colleges and universities were forced to close, you can sign up online and your application will be processed within three business days. Your library card will be mailed to you. Your card will be valid for 6 months. When the MTA Library reopens you will need to come in and sign a patron registration card and show proof of residency.  At that time your card will be changed to be valid for 3 years.
