Computer Access

Even without a library card, you can use one of our 20 public computers in the Reference Department. Logging in with a library card grants you 1 hour of computer time. Logging in with a guest pass grants you 30 minutes of computer time. Working on a resume, job application, or school project? We can extend your time as long as you need.

Community Resources

We can provide information about local organizations, food pantries, day care centers, ESL classes, HSE classes, immigration services, and more. We like to know everything about the Paterson community!

Ask a Reference Librarian!

  • Can I see a list of support groups in Passaic County?
  • How can I write a letter to CBS?
  • Can you help me find sources for my college paper?
  • Do you have any books on film production?

These are just some of the questions we can answer for you at the Reference Desk. Don’t be shy! We’re here to help.
