Fines Resume January 15th

Dear patrons,

The board of Main, our consortium of libraries in greater Morris County that administers our online catalog, has decided to allow fines to begin to accrue on items checked out and now past due.  Thus, beginning January 15, 2021, the Morristown & Morris Township Library will resume collecting fines on our items. Our staff will begin to again accept cash and checks as methods of payment for future fines.  Please note that some Main libraries began accruing fines on their items as of January 1, 2021, so any items checked out from other libraries may accrue fines for items due since that time.  For any Morristown & Morris Township Library items, patrons will not be charged before January 15. If you have any questions or concerns about your account or your items, please contact our staff at the main Circulation desk at 973-538-6161 or via email at

Our online catalog system will be down from January 8-12 in order to bring the records of  two new Main members, Bernardsville Library and the Hunterdon County Library system, into our system.  The addition of these two new members will provide additional resources for patrons to borrow and utilize.  The Bernardsville Library has been our partner in borrowing for years through the Morris-Union Federation (MUF) and more recently Main has shared costs with the Hunterdon County Library in acquiring online databases.  For more information on these new Main libraries, please see:

Thank you for your continued support of our library!
