Long Hill, Bernardsville join federation of Morris, Union libraries
Agreement means patrons can access expanded collections
Special to the Daily Record • February 22, 2009
LONG HILL -- Members of the Long Hill and Bernardsville public libraries can now tap the resources of seven other public libraries in neighboring towns in Morris, Union and Somerset counties.
The two libraries have joined the Morris Union Federation of Libraries, according to a press release announcing the agreement.
Both of the libraries already have some affiliation with federation members. Bernardsville has a reciprocal services agreement with the Bernards Township and the Morristown/Morris Township libraries, and Long Hill is a member of the Morris Automated Information Network, a consortium made up of 37 public libraries and the Morris County Library.
The newest agreement expands the number of libraries where their residents may have access. The federation also includes the libraries of Summit, Berkeley Heights, New Providence, Madison and the Chathams. In addition, the libraries at the College of St. Elizabeth, Drew University and Fairleigh Dickinson University cooperate in the venture, providing a greater variety of subject matter than usually available in municipal libraries.
For more information on the federation or a copy of a brochure listing the addresses and hours of all federation members, call the Long Hill Public Library at (908) 647-2088 or the Bernardsville Public Library at (908) 766-0118.
