Circulation Policy


If you are a Dumont resident, or own real estate in Dumont, we welcome you as a member of the Library at no charge. Free library cards are issued upon presentation of proper identification.  Adults must bring a current photo ID and proof of residency.  A NJ driver’s license with a Dumont address serves as both.  Individuals with other than NJ issued photo ID’s will be asked for another acceptable document to confirm residency: a lease, tax bill, mortgage statement, or PSE&G bill which must be in that person’s name.

Library cards may be used at other Bergen County Cooperative Library System (BCCLS) libraries. For a child under the age of 18 to register for a card, a parent or guardian with valid ID must be present to acknowledge responsibility.


Requests can be initiated  online or by visiting the library and speaking to  a  staff member at the Circulation or Reference desk. To expedite loans, please include your phone number and e-mail address. Please limit requests to seven (7) per day.


Materials may be renewed providing no one else is waiting. Internet (you must have a pin number) or telephone renewals are accepted. Your library card bar-code and pin number are required for renewals. Click here to view your Library Card.


Please return materials on time so others may borrow them. A book-drop is available for use when the library is closed. Fines are assessed as followed.

New Dvd's $1.00 per day
Other overdue materials $.20 per day
Replacement parts (cases, inserts, Etc.) library discretion
Replace lost borrower's card $3.00

PIN (Personal Identification Number):
If you do not yet have a PIN, please ask for one the next time you visit the Circulation Desk. A PIN enables you to view your library card account and see items you have checked out or have on reserve, renew items before they become overdue, cancel requests and view a list of outstanding fines.
