AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT! Items listed as available in an online catalog sometimes cannot be found on the shelf when you visit the library. Please call before you visit any of the MURAL libraries to make sure the items you wish to borrow are actually available. If they are, ask the library staff to put them aside for you, and ask whether there are any borrowing restrictions. Also, be sure you have your South Plainfield card with you when you visit any of these libraries!
You can use JERSEYCAT to locate specific titles in the MURAL system, but PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT INTERLIBRARY LOAN REQUESTS ONLINE while we are closed! You will need to call the MURAL library to have the item held for you.
