All About Library Cards

Resident Cards

All residents of Brielle can obtain a Brielle Public Library Card free of charge. Simply apply at the Circulation Desk, and be sure to bring along some official identification, such as a driver's license or bill, indicating your township address.

Courtesy Cards

Courtesy cards are issued to people who do not live in Brielle or in any of its reciprocal borrowing communities, but who work for the borough or the Brielle school. These cards entitle the card holder to the same privileges as a reciprocal patron.

Non-Resident Cards

For a fee of $50.00 per year this card entitles non-residents to all the privileges that Brielle residents have in the library.
