Ridgewood Public Library  &   BCCLS  

RPL and Bergen County Cooperative Library System (BCCLS, pronounced “buckles”) purchase subscription resources available for residents with a public library card.  

As part of Freshman Focus, 9th grade students have received RPL cards for the past five years. If you no longer have your card, please visit RPL to replace it and get a new pin#.

Ridgewood Public School teachers who reside in towns that are not part of BCCLS may apply at RPL for a courtesy card.

The following are a few RPL/BCCLS resources that are especially useful for academic research.
