Library Hours and Reservations for Study Spaces/Computer Lab Access

Potter Library in Linden Hall is one of the available study spaces/computer lab spaces on campus.

We will be open Monday-Thursday, 9am-5pm. The library is only open to current, registered RCNJ students, faculty and staff. To visit the library, either please make a reservation at 201.684.7575 or just walk-in. Masks will be required, and the library has been configured to support social distancing.

Curbside Pickup of Materials at Potter Library - COLLECTION MOVE

During the months of July and August, all library collections -- including all books, DVDs, Course Reserves, special collections, and more -- currently located in Linden Hall will be moved to the new Learning Commons building. Throughout this process, the collection may be in-part or completely inaccessible at different times. Once the collection materials begin to move to the new space, the library recommends requests for materials for checkout go through our Curbside Pickup (https://forms.gle/q8vRHAUKckTcHCFKA) service.

Potter Library has a Curbside Pickup service for library materials, which is limited to current Ramapo students, faculty, and staff.
