About The Bergen County Cooperative Library System
The Glen Rock Public Library is a proud member of the Bergen County Cooperative Library System, more commonly known as BCCLS (pronounced "Buckles"), a consortium of 76 libraries in northern New Jersey.
Glen Rock residents can use their library card at any of the 76 member libraries, and can request other libraries' items to be delivered to Glen Rock through the interlibrary loan program. Additionally, any materials borrowed from any of these libraries can be returned to any BCCLS library.
Through BCCLS, Glen Rock residents have access to digital resources to download and stream for items such as eBooks, audiobooks, music, tv shows, and movies.
Our cardholders also have access to a collection of proprietary databases that can be accessed online with a valid library card. These databases include magazine, newspaper, and reference articles, provide in-depth research resources, and span a wide variety of subjects including biography, business, history, literature, reader's advisory, and more.
