New Patron Welcome Kit

Welcome to Library of the Chathams! We are a joint library serving the residents of Chatham Borough and Chatham Township.  Your Chatham library card is valid in all 50 public libraries in the Main Library Alliance consortium. Member libraries are located in Hunterdon, Morris, Somerset, Union, and Warren Counties and you can request items in the catalog and pick them up in Chatham. Chatham cardholders in good standing are also welcome to use the MUF (Morris-Union Federation) libraries in Summit and Berkeley Heights.

Chatham cardholders in good standing may request a green Open Borrowing sticker on their Chatham Library card, allowing them to borrow from participating libraries in LMxAC (Middlesex Co.), PALSPlus (Passaic Co.), and SWELL (Sussex Co./Sparta/Warren Co.) systems. Click here for more information on Open Borrowing.
