Library Closing Information

Emergency Closings & Changes

  • All Libraries Closed

  • The Cape May County Library will be closing all locations until further notice for the health and safety of library staff and customers. Cape May County Library is taking this step after careful consideration in light of the state and national emergencies declared due to the continually developing conditions concerning Coronavirus (COVID-19). We will reevaluate our opening date if it becomes necessary.

    Please ignore automated notices about due dates. All late fees will be waived. Library card renewals will be extended. All programs and services, including bookmobile and homebound deliveries, will continue to be on hold until we re-open.

    Please continue to enjoy your items; we ask that you do not return materials until we have reopened.

    The Library’s digital resources will continue to be available through our website. Patrons can check out eBooks, eAudiobooks, digital magazines, music, and more. These resources are available through the library’s website at cmclibrary.org.

    For up-to-date information about the Coronavirus itself, please visit https://www.cdc.gov or https://www.nj.gov/health/cd/topics/ncov.shtml.
