Notice: Our ability to share library materials depends on a state-funded library delivery system. Funding has been eliminated in Gov. Christie's 2011 budget. While we understand the State's fiscal challenges, funding for these valuable statewide library services programs was not reduced, but completely eliminated. Without restoration of this funding LMxAC libraries will not be able to send materials to each other in support of the "holds" feature in our online catalog. This feature will be modified on June 30, 2010 to allow patrons to place holds ONLY on those items owned at their home library. We regret the necessity of this change and hope that funding will be restored. For the latest details on funding for statewide library programs go to www.savemynjlibrary.org.
