The Gloucester County Library System (GCLS) is a group of individual and interdependent libraries that cooperate through a central administrative body to provide a wide range of library services for eligible patrons. Sharing resources enables members of the system to provide more cost-effective and technologically sophisticated services than any could provide operating alone.
Of the 24 municipalities in Gloucester County, all residents of the 14 member communities listed here currently have free access to the full services of the Gloucester County Library System through libraries located in the following towns:
Library cards are issued without charge to residents of the 14 participating communities; nonresident owners of property in a member community; not-for-profit organizations within Gloucester County; educators teaching in Gloucester County; county department heads; and those holding elected/appointed positions in county, state, or federal government.
