The General Reference department is closed due to ongoing renovations.

The General Reference Department includes materials that cover the widest possible range of subject interests and viewpoints, including areas of both historical and current concern. Reference sources are available in books, newspapers and other periodicals, microfiche/films, and online databases.

The Reference Department is currently closed while the Main Library undergoes extensive renovations. The Library’s wide range of online resources remains available during this time, and Reference librarians are available by phone to assist patrons with reference inquiries and questions.

If you have any questions about accessing Reference collections or resources, please contact John Butler at 201-547-4553 or Patricia Mulligan at 201-547-4543.
