The Runnemede Public Library is a Municipal Library which means that we are supported by local taxpayers only, and not part of the County Library System. To obtain a card, (we issue a family card), you must appear in person with ID that shows residence in Runnemede.
We will accept a valid Driver’s License. If you have not changed your Driver’s License address yet, please present a utility bill, or Mortgage/Lease paperwork with your picture ID.
If you are employed in Runnemede may also obtain a library card. Be prepared to present a current pay stub showing the address of your employer with your ID.
*You must be 18 years of age or older to apply.
The Runnemede Public Library’s mission is to make available to all residents, library materials to meet the community’s informational and entertainment needs, within our budget. To promote the enjoyment of reading, to strengthen life-long learning, citizenship and the appreciation of the world around.
This September marks the 10th Anniversary of the “new” library. It is hard to believe that ten years has passed already. It seems like just yesterday that we were in the midst of final preparations for opening day on September 18th, 2004. Not only did we host a Library Grand Opening Gala to celebrate the wonderful Friends of the Library on the night before opening; we had to make sure we were ready to operate in our fully functional capacity the next morning. It was a very big job and involved many, many people without whom it would not have happened. Thank you all again!
It was a thrilling and stressful time but I think, and hope that you agree that it was well worth the time and energy invested in this remarkable project.
