General Policies

Your valid library card must be presented in order to borrow or renew materials, pay fines, check your library record or place requests for materials.

Your Library card is free, with valid proof of Tenafly residency. Each family member (age 5 and up) should have his/her own library card. Children are issued a card under the authority of their parent or legal guardian who must present valid identification and co-sign the child's application. Tenafly High School students who can present a current Tenafly High School photo ID plus one additional form of ID confirming their Tenafly residency do not need a parent or legal guardian to register for a library card. The parent/guardian is responsible for all materials checked out on the child's card and for all fines and replacement costs incurred by the child.

The replacement fee for a lost card is $3.00.
