 Library cards and book renewals

Ramsey residents and property owners who wish to obtain a library card from the Ramsey Free Public Library need to present proof of residency or anything that has your name and address on it such as mail, drivers license, leases, or passports.

The library card may be used in any of the 77+ libraries in the Bergen County Library System as well as the Morris and Passaic Library Cooperative Systems. With your library card you may renew items and search online databases from home. You will need to enter the full barcode number - no spaces - from your card. A four digit PIN will be required to renew items online. That must be obtained from your library. If you have all this, check your library card now.

Those who work in Ramsey and do not reside in Bergen County may obtain a limited access card. Please come with your business card or letterhead. For further information please call us at 201-327-1445 or email us at ramscirc@bccls.org.
