Hackettstown Free Public Library







  Announcing new Friday hours:

As of January 2, 2015, the library will be open from

9 am to 8 pm on Friday nights!

Stop by for books and a movie for the week-end!







Monday - Friday, 9 am - 8 pm

Saturday - 9 am - 12 pm



In order to better serve the public,

we have made these changes in our policies:


DVDs:  you're now allowed a total of 6 DVDs: one 3-Day Movie, one TV Series and four 7-Day Movies.  You can reserve only one 3-Day Movie at a time and DVDs cannot be renewed. 

BOOKS: books (that are not reserved for another patron) may be renewed one time only, and no renewals on materials from the Interlibrary Loan Service.

FINES: fines for books are 20 cents per day, DVD fines are $1 per day.  Borrowing privileges will be suspended when you owe more than $5 in fines. There will be a $3.00 processing fee added to the replacement cost of a lost book or other type of library materials.

RESERVES: please pick up your reserved items within 3 days of notification. After 3 days, items will be passed on to the next patron on the waiting list or returned to the shelf.

These policy changes will help the library provide fair and prompt service to our patrons, particularly with items that are in high demand.
