Upon registering your library card, you must read and agree to sign and abide by the following pledge:
"This library card permits me to borrow materials and use services from the Bloomfield Township Public Library. I agree to be financially responsible for all materials borrowed or services used through this card. I agree to abide by all library policies and regulations. This library card is subject to expiration. Responsibility for the choice of materials borrowed rests with the person whose signature appears on this pledge. It is the sole responsibiltiy of the person to whom the Library card belongs for the return of items borrowed and fees and fines accumulated on the card.
Lending a library card to others or using your library card to check out items for others does not release the person names on the card - or the parents or guardian of a minor - from these responsibilities. It is the responsibility of the parent or legal guardian to determine whether a minor may use a library card at BTPL. The Library assumes that permission to use a valid BTPL card has been assigned to the individual who is in possession of the card."
