Accessing Your Account
It is a good idea to know how to access your own Library account. To do so, you will need to use the 14-digit number found on your library card and your Personal Identification Number (PIN). If you do not have your PIN, call the Borrower Services Desk at 732-329-4000, ext. 7290.
The following options to acquire an item that is not available at the library is as follows:
A Hold (also known as a Reserve) can be placed on most items listed in the LMxAC Catalog.
Holds may be placed through the online catalog, at the Information Desk or by phone at 732-329-4000, ext. 7286. A library card is required to place a hold. Certain restrictions apply.
You will be notified when your reserved item is available. There is a 25¢ service fee at pick-up for each reserved item.
Reciprocal and Open Borrowing
Your Library card can be used at the nearly 30 member libraries in LMxAC (Libraries of Middlesex Automation Consortium). The Library also has reciprocal agreements with Franklin Township (Franklin Library Catalog) and M.U.R.A.L. (Middlesex Union Reciprocal Associated Libraries).
A card holder may also want to use the larger lending service Open Borrowing.
If you wish to participate, please contact the Borrower Services Desk for more information.
