A valid Millburn Library card is required for all circulation transactions, and also unlocks access to our digital library apps & databases (using the barcode number on the back). Library cards also have a PIN to unlock access to one’s library account (which can be reset by speaking with staff).
Residents looking to sign up for a new card can get one at the Front Circulation Desk, or apply online and receive a temporary card number until you can visit us.
The following are acceptable types of I.D. for getting a new library card, or renewing an existing card:
Millburn Library cards are free when first registering. Lost cards can be replaced for a fee of $5.00. Please visit us at the Front Circulation Desk if you need a new or replacement card.
According to N.J. Statute 18A:73-41.1-3, information in a patron’s record is available to the cardholder only, including children’s records. The privacy of Millburn patron’s records may be overridden only by subpoena, search warrant, or by Federal agents legitimately invoking the Patriot Act.
Items on hold may be picked up only with presentation of the card of the patron for whom the item is on hold. All registered cardholders must present their cards when checking out materials from the library. This policy is a safeguard against fraud and is for your protection. An image of your library card that is stored on your smartphone is acceptable. As a courtesy, Millburn/Short Hills residents may present their I.D. if they forget their card.
Millburn Library does not retain a history of items checked out by patrons, unless the patron personally opts-in to such on their library account.
Library cards are non-transferrable. Electronically-stored versions of your card (i.e., smartphone app) are acceptable at Millburn Library.
