The Fort Lee Community Library is open
In an effort to balance access to the resources traditionally enjoyed by our patrons with our concerns for their safety, the library has set safeguards into place to assist the public in maintaining social distancing protocols. During hours of operation, the library will require masks and social distancing. Plexiglass screens have been installed on the Library Circulation Desk (Customer Service). In an effort to assist in social distancing, patrons will be limited to every third FMWR computer.
The Library continues to offer the following services:
eBooks, audiobooks and more are available to patrons with online accounts. Checkout both Overdrive and RB Digital for a great selection of resources.
