MTPL Blog

From December 12th until sometime in January (exact date unknown), the automated telephone system will not be functioning.  The library will  be migrating to a new version of our catalog during this time, and we will need to phase in the automated telephone system after we get the catalog up and running.  During this transition period customers will not be able to renew using the automated phone renewal system.  They also will not receive any automated phone calls (for overdues, for holds to pickup, etc.).  We will be offering, as an alternative, the following options:

1)Email notification

2)Online access through the “My Account” feature at www.mtpl.org

We will be putting bookmarks in all our hold books and giving out bookmarks to all customers checking out material over the next week, letting you know that you will need to switch to email notification and self-service account access through the website in order to have 24/7 access to library services.

We are sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience during this transition.


Its here!! We now have ebooks for the Kindle!!



Our ebook service has been updated to include Kindle copies for ALL our available ebooks through ListenNJ! If you now visit ListenNJ from your browser and search for titles, you will see that Kindle copies are available.


The Kindle download process will be a little different than for other devices. From the ListenNJ page, when you request and checkout a Kindle copy, you will be redirected to Amazon where you will use your Amazon account (if you do not have one, you can create one for free, just need an emaili account) to finish the process. The book will be added to your Kindle account (like your other Kindle books) and you can then download the book to your device.


This will also work for the Kindle app for iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad. So, if you use the Kindle app with your Kindle, or just stand alone, you can check out Kindle books from ListenNJ and read them on you Kindle App as well


Like the current service, you get the book for a limited checkout (usually 14 days) and then it is returned and removed from your device. Go ahead and try it today!! But before you do, check out the Amazon Kindle Public Library page with more information about how the process will work with Kindle.


And of course, contact the library with any problems, issues and questions that you may have.. Enjoy!!
