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 (https://data.democratandchronicle.com/), 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 Bridgeton Public Library will have a limited reopening beginning on Tuesday July 7, 2020. This is the 3rd Step in a careful phased approach to restarting services at the library. The library hours will be: Tuesday – Thursday 10am -8pm; Friday 9am-5pm; Saturday from 9am-4pm. The library is closed on Sunday and Monday.

The following safety protocols will be strictly followed:

  • Patrons MUST wear masks.
  • Patrons must physically distance from staff and other patrons.
  • Patrons must respect/adhere to capacity limits inside the library (25 maximum).
  • At this time bathrooms will not be available for public use.
  • Patrons must respect the 1 hour maximum time limit per visit and leave the library as soon as their hour is up.
  • Computer time hour time limit will be followed. Time will not be extended.
  • Patrons will have their temperature taken upon entering the library. If patron is found to have an above normal temperature (above 100.4) the patron will be asked to leave the library immediately.
  • All returned items will be quarantined for a minimum of 72 hours before being recirculated, as per guidelines from public health officials.
  • In-person programming will not be available during this Step of reopening.
  • No Food or drink allowed into the library
  • Museum visits by appointment only and are limited to 4 people at a time.
