BCCLS libraries helping all of us!

BCCLS Libraries Expanding Local Virtual Services

Some BCCLS libraries have been able to expand their local services to help all BCCLS patrons—that's you!

Newspaper Archive

The Ridgewood Public Library has temporarily expanded access to Newspaper Archives to all BCCLS cardholders working remotely, courtesy of Newspaper Archives.

To access Newspaper Archives please email or send a chat message (blue box to the bottom right of the webpage) with the following information:

· Your first and last name

· Your BCCLS card number

Upon receipt of this information, one of our Reference Librarians will send you the log-in information.

Remote access will be re-evaluated on a monthly basis.

Moazine - Korean eMagazine

The Paramus Public Library has received permissions from Moazine to provide access to their service to all of BCCLS while our libraries are closed. The database can be accessed through the main page of the Paramus website. Patrons should enter the number “12345” instead of their library card number.

Instructions for Korean Language Magazine and E-Book Access

Users who want access must go to:

· Go to Yes24 website. (

Log back in to start using the magazines and books.
