Mary Jacobs / Montgomery Branch Updates

All of the System’s digital resources will remain available 24/7 even when the Library is temporarily closed. You can also visit our other SCLSNJ locations to browse and borrow physical materials.

Items can be returned at the Mary Jacobs branch book drop while it is closed for renovation. Just be aware that materials will be transported to the Montgomery branch before they are checked in, so don’t worry if a few days pass before your items are removed from your account. Once the Montgomery branch opens in mid June, materials can also be returned there.

When the Mary Jacobs branch temporarily closes for renovations on Monday, May 23, 2022, hold pickups will be made available at the closest branch to the Mary Jacobs branch, which is the Hillsborough branch. The Hillsborough branch is located at 379 South Branch Road in Hillsborough. After the Montgomery branch opens in mid-June, holds can be picked up there while the Mary Jacobs branch remains closed for renovations. Holds pickup will resume at the Mary Jacobs branch once it reopens.

Services available will include, but are not limited to: holds pickup, WiFi, computer access, printing, a browsing collection, and children’s and family programming.

Future Mary Jacobs holds will be rerouted to the new Montgomery branch, which will be open for regular hold pickup on June 17, 2022.
