Borrowing Library Materials

There is no charge to borrow any Library material, with the exception of rental books. A borrower must have a valid Monroe Township Public Library Card. Patron and Library Card must be present at the time of borrowing.


Self Check Out

A self-checkout system is now available to the public. Patrons must have a Monroe Library Card. This user-friendly system allows patrons to check out their own materials and is extremely easy to use.
