  • The Library will be closed on Tuesday, November 5 for election day.
Beginning November 1, Macmillan Publishers will restrict public libraries to the purchase of only one copy of a new eBook title following its release, after which the publisher will impose an eight-week embargo.
Ocean County Library’s top priorities are our patrons and the products we offer them. We see our digital services as an integral part of bridging information and entertainment from these authors to our patrons. As a result, our library system will not be adding new titles from the Macmillan publishing house during the eight-week embargo.
The Ocean County Library supports the American Library Association and the New Jersey Library Association’s opposition to this new policy.
