No More Rental Fees
The Board of Trustees of the Oradell Free Public Library has voted to end rental fees on all new DVDs. Adult circulation DVDs can be checked out for 3 days. Oradell residents can now reserve new DVDs. The overdue fee will remain at $1.00 per day.
The Board of Trustees is thrilled to be able to offer residents this service. Thanks in part to the Oradell Borough Council restoring funding and the support of the community, we are able to drop the rental fees.
