Ask a Librarian

ATTENTION: If you are contacting us because you are concerned about due dates and/or want to renew your items during the library closure due to COVID-19, please check the COVID-19 Updates page regularly. 
ALL CHECKED-OUT LIBRARY ITEMS WERE EXTENDED THROUGH THE END OF MAY. Additionally, the library does not charge late fees while all locations are closed.

To request a specific item that the library does not own, please refer to Interlibrary Loan for policies and request forms.

Depending upon the difficulty of your question, you may expect an answer or status report within one to three working days.  If you need a quicker response, please call our Reference Desk at (732) 634-4450 ext. 7120.

Need help with your library account?

If you've never had a WPL library card you can now apply for a NEW library account online to get immediate access to our digital library while you wait for your card in the mail!

If you need to renew a library account (even if you lost your card) or you don't want to use our online form for a new account, please contact us here. You MUST include the following information with your request:

  1. Full Name
  2. Address
  3. Phone Number (and specify Cell or Home)
  4. Email Address
  5. Whether the request is for an adult or juvenile card (Juvenile accounts are for residents in 7th grade or lower).
  6. If you lost your previous library card and need a replacement

Failure to include these items WILL delay your request, because we will have to follow up with you during business hours (M-F 9-5) and won't be able to proceed until after we have gotten your response. Thank you.


Please enter your question or information request above. Feel free to add any other details you think may be relevant.
