Little Falls Public Library's Mission Statement
The Mission of the Little Falls Public Library is to provide resources and services that encourage literacy and enrich the community by opening doors to the lifelong enjoyment of learning.
Use of Public Computers in the Library

The library provides computers for on-site access to the Internet and is a WiFi area for those who wish to use their own equipment. Little Falls residents must use their library card number to access the Internet. The Internet is also accessible with any active PALS Plus (Passaic Area Library System) library card. Non-residents who do not have a PALS Plus library card must provide a photo-ID at the Circulation Desk to receive a Guest Pass.          

Gift and Donation Policy

The Little Falls Public Library welcomes donations of new and used books, audio recordings, DVDs, and similar materials that have been published in the last 3 years.
  • Items will be added to the collection in accordance with the selection policy of the library.
  • The library reserves the right to decide when any gift/donation added to the collection must  be withdrawn.
  • Pick up is not available; all items must be brought to the library.
  • The library reserves the right to refuse any materials due to condition or age. (Note: Please do not drop off materials that do not meet the library's donation policy. The Little Falls Recycling Center does accept books.)
  • The library does not accept Reader's Digests, magazines, condensed books, text books,  encyclopedias or series books.
  • The library does not provide an appraisal service, suggest value, recommend professional appraisers, nor provide lists of donated materials.
  • The library will only acknowledge receipt of donated items at the time of donation. In order to receive a signed receipt for materials donations, a written listing of the donated items must be furnished to the library at the time of donation.

Monetary gifts, bequests, and memorial or honorary contributions are particularly welcome. Funds donated will be used to purchase items in accordance with the selection policy of the library. Books, videos, and other materials purchased with bequests and memorial or honorary contributions will be identified with special donor labels whenever possible. If requested, notification of memorial or honorary contributions will be sent to the family of the person being recognized. Suggestions for subject areas or other areas of interest are welcome and will be followed to the extent possible.

Acceptance of donations of equipment, real estate, stock, artifacts, works of art, collections, etc. will be determined by the library board based on suitability to the purposes and needs of the library, laws and regulations that govern ownership of the gift, and the library's ability to cover insurance and maintenance costs associated with the donation.

Donated items become the property of the Little Falls Public Library and may be given to other libraries and non-profit agencies, sold, traded, or discarded if they are not added to the collection. Donated items will not be returned to the donor and the library will not accept any item that is not an outright gift.

Items received by/delivered to the library without the director's prior approval will be considered unsolicited donations. The library accepts no responsibility for unsolicited donations and is under no obligation to these donors.
