Welcome to the catalog of the Hoboken Public Library, a member of the Bergen County Cooperative Library System. You may search for items owned by over seventy libraries and within some BCCLS databases. Books not available within the BCCLS catalog may be requested through Jerseycat (Statewide ILL catalog) by resident Hoboken library card holders. For browsers who just want to know what general call number area to look in for nonfiction you can use the Dewey Decimal Classification Table.

Please note a few of these resources require a pin number/password. You can retrieve your pin number by going to this bccls page and entering your library card. It will send it to you by the email that you have associated with your library account. If you need assistance with any of these services email reference@hoboken.bccls.org
