Homebound Services

This program is designed to provide library materials to anyone who is a resident of Clark Township and is confined to their home or a convalescent center due to illness, injury or disability. Each homebound patron is individually profiled and matched with a volunteer on a one-to-one basis. Library staff will select library material for the homebound patron based on their reading requirements and preferences. Materials may include large-type books, audio books, music CDs and DVDs. As library material is loaned for a four week period, new and other high demand items will not be included in this service. Homebound patrons may elect to use a relative or friend as their volunteer contact with the library. Volunteers will be recruited to assist in the delivery of materials for any homebound patron without a contact to help with the delivery of the service. Volunteers recruited by the library will undergo a basic criminal check by local police officials. Library fines will not be applied to a homebound person’s account, however users are responsible for the cost of lost or damaged library material. The Homebound Services Librarian will be the point of contact for all services to the homebound customer for lost and overdue materials.

ILL

If you are a member of the Clark Public Library and need items that are not listed in our catalog, you may request them through Interlibrary Loan via the JerseyCat catalog. The JerseyCat catalog includes the collections of many of New Jersey’s public libraries, colleges and schools.

Meeting Rooms

Clark Public Library is a great place to hold an off-site meeting, staff training, team building event, interviews or other business meetings. The library is located near the Garden State Parkway and offers plenty of parking. The library has distinct meeting spaces that can accommodate large and small groups. The meeting rooms are available to be rented for use during the library’s normal operating hours. Meeting rooms may be reserved for a maximum of one meeting per month; approval from the Director will be needed for additional meetings. Rooms may be booked up to 3 months in advance based on the library’s programming schedule and availability. While the primary purpose of the Clark Public Library meeting space is to host library-sponsored events and activities, we are pleased to be able to share these beautiful rooms with area businesses, community partners, nonprofits, and other organizations.
