Most materials available for circulation can be provided via the Mobile Library. Customers may submit a written request to the staff or place their own holds remotely, using our online catalog.

Customers will be notified by phone when the requested item is available for pickup.

 

*BCLS is funded by a dedicated library tax. The county library tax is paid by 37 of 40 municipalities. Willingboro, Mount Laurel and Moorestown each fund their own libraries.
