How do I get a library card and how do I use it?
All residents and taxpayers of Piscataway Township are eligible for free library membership. Simply bring a identification with your Piscataway address. Non-residents who work or attend school in Piscataway may use their hometown library card if they live in one of the communities with which Piscataway Library has a borrowing agreement.
If you do not qualify with any of the preceding criteria, you may apply for a courtesy card. A courtesy card is welcome at the Piscataway Public Libraries, but may not be used at other libraries. Non-residents may not be able to borrow the full range of materials available to residents. Schools, day care centers and other organizations may apply for an institutional card. Lost or stolen library cards should be reported at once. A small fee is charged for a replacement card.
A Piscataway Public Library card enables you to borrow materials from the facilities in our library system: the J. F. Kennedy Library and the J. W. Westergard Branch Library. When using the facilities of a library that has an open borrowing agreement with Piscataway Public Library, the types of materials available to non-residents may vary from library to library.
