Bridgeton Public Library Notice

While Governor Murphy has lifted the indoor mask mandate for vaccinated people as of Friday May 28, 2021, he has allowed individual businesses or entities to make local decisions about safety precautions. The Bridgeton Public Library will continue to require staff and community members to wear masks and observe the social distancing of 6ft while inside the library. This decision was reached after consultations with the City of Bridgeton, other libraries within the County and information from the County Health Board and the State of New Jersey. The decision to still require masks and social distancing while in the library is out of respect for those who are unable to be vaccinated and are required to continue to follow these guidelines. Additionally, as of June 1, 2021, only 29.52% of Cumberland County residents are fully vaccinated at this time (, and we are not in a position to determine which of our patrons are vaccinated and which are not vaccinated.

The Bridgeton Public Library is NOT accepting any used book donations at this time.

The following safety protocols will be strictly followed:

  • Patrons MUST wear masks.
  • Patrons must physically distance from staff and other patrons.
  • No Food or drink allowed into the library
  • Museum visits by appointment only and are limited to 4 people at a time.

Thank you for your support!
