Effective November 1, 2022, the Matawan-Public Library is no longer offering porch pickup. Patrons who wish to pick-up an item can use our catalog item hold feature to place a hold on an item. The requested item will be pulled from our shelves and made available at the Circulation Desk for pickup.

How to place a hold:

  1. Search for the book or other item that you want in our online catalog.
  2. To search, type keywords such as author, title, or subject into the search bar.
  3. Hold Search icon
  4. When you locate the item you would like to request, please click on the “Place Hold” button located on the upper right-hand corner across from the title.
  5. Hold Button icon
  6. You will be asked for your library card number and PIN. The PIN is the last four digits of your library card unless you have manually changed that information.
  7. The Matawan-Aberdeen Public Library is the default pick-up location if you are using our card.
  8. You will be notified that the item is ready for pickup via text (SMS), or a phone call if you did not sign up for text notification.
  9. If you have any further questions, or are having trouble with placing a hold, please call us at (732)583-9100.
