Regarding e-books... The Library fields many questions each week regarding e-books. Besides "How do I download?", the next most-asked questions are along the lines of "Why don't you provide more titles?" or "Why don't you provide more copies of a certain title?" Despite libraries' efforts to be involved in the e-book evolution, we are at the mercy of publishers regarding purchasing rights. You can help by participating in a campaign that aims to get the voice of library patrons who use e-readers heard by publishers. Please visit the New Jersey Library Association website at http://savemynjlibrary.org/notenoughebooks for more information and to find out how you can make yourself heard.
POLICY CHANGE As of April 2, 2012, refunds are no longer issued on lost and paid items. See a staff member at the circulation desk with questions.
