It's Not Hard to Carry Your Card...on Your Phone

The library is now pleased to accept library barcodes on any smartphone barcode app. Download an app such as Card Star or Key Ring to store your barcodes on your phone.  Use it just as you would the physical card.
*Please be aware that not all libraries have access to scanners that accept barcodes from phones.  Please bring your physical card when traveling to other libraries.   

Public Scanner and Fax
The library now has a scanner and fax machine for public use on Level D.  Please see a Reference Librarian for assistance.

Fair Lawn library members may now borrow passes to the Montclair Art Museum!

The Fair Lawn Library has started a video game collection. 
Do you no longer play some of your games at home?  Please consider donating them to the library so other people can enjoy playing them.  
The policies of the collection are as follows:
  • All games can be borrowed for 14 days and cannot be renewed.
  • Limit of 5 games per library card.
  • As of now, some of the games are unable to be linked to the card catalog and, therefore, cannot be reserved or searched for on the catalog. 
This is mainly a browsing collection.  Here is a list of all games currently owned by the library:
