This is a press release from Bloomfield Township. Press releases are official statements that have not been independently verified.

The Bloomfield Public Library will once again be offering fax, scanning and photocopying services beginning this Tuesday. These services had temporarily suspended as a result of COVID-19.

“Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, all of our departments have made it a priority to continue delivering as many services as possible for residents,” said Mayor Venezia. “For safety reasons, some services have been scaled back and others have been temporarily put on hold. I am thrilled to see the Library open up these services once again in addition to the exceptional services they have been providing.”

The library is currently offering front door pickup of requested library materials such as books and DVDs in addition to print jobs which have been emailed to the reference department’s email at reference@bplnj.org. Documents for faxing, scanning, or photocopying should be dropped off at the Adult Library’s front door with instructions as to the handling of the material. A staff member will return the completed job to the patron who will remain outside the building.

There is no charge for service costing less than $1.00. Payment for services costing $1.00 and over must be paid for with either a credit or debit card.

The Bloomfield Library’s hours are Monday 1:00pm-3:45pm & 5:00pm-7:30pm and Tuesday-Friday 10:00am-12:45pm & 2:00pm-4:30pm. The Library will be open on Saturdays for front door service after Labor Day. Hours will be the same as the Tuesday-Friday schedule.

All patrons must wear a mask and maintain social distancing (6’) from staff and other patrons while waiting for their service to be completed. To contact the library call 973-566-6200, email reference@bplnj.org, or use Purechat available on the library’s web site at www.bplnj.org.
