The Westfield Memorial Library participates in a reciprocal borrowing arrangement called M.U.R.A.L. (Middlesex Union Reciprocal Agreement Libraries). M.U.R.A.L. permits any Westfield card holder in good standing to use his or her library card at nearly any other library in Union or Middlesex. MURAL is a fantastic program that greatly expands the collections and library programs available to you.
To see where a particular book is available, please check JerseyCat. (the same website you would use for an ILL request). Each library has its own rules for what sorts of materials can be borrowed. We recommend that you call the library to be visited to make sure that the item is available for you and that you can borrow it.
If you do not reside in Westfield but you do live in a MURAL town, you can get a Westfield MURAL card if you present a valid library card from your home library and photo ID. MURAL patrons can use many services here at the WML, but there are a few restrictions. These restrictions include no borrowing 14-day, new fiction books, 14-day, new non-fiction books, ereaders, and museum passes. MURAL cardholders also cannot put items on “Hold” nor request items through InterLibrary Loan.
Some Westfield Library programs are available to MURAL members, some are not.
A full service Westfield card can be purchased for $90 a year.
