Our New Catalog is Ready! (Read this carefully, please)
Exciting news! The Bloomsburg Public Library is partnering with the Columbia County Traveling Library and the Orangeville Public Library to provide seamless borrowing and returning of books, audiobooks, and DVDs among the three partner libraries. Bloomsburg Public Library patrons used to have access to about 40,000 books, audiobooks, and DVDs and you now have access to about 100,000 items from all partner libraries!
All three libraries are now sharing one catalog system. This means you can reserve books from any partner library and they will be delivered to your preferred pickup location within 4-10 days.
You can also return your library books at any partner library and we will route them back to their home library.
All three libraries are fine-free and have consistent borrowing policies.
PLEASE REGISTER TO SIGN UP OR TO CONFIRM YOUR INFORMATION
It will help us if you complete this registration form to confirm your information and preferred pickup location, even if you have a pre-existing account. (Especially if you have accounts with more than one library!)
