ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. — Borough residents can now go to Fort Lee if they want to check out a book from the library, according to a story on northjersey.com.

The Borough Council approved a yearlong contract, 4-1, earlier this week with Fort Lee, reported northjersey.com.

Several residents opposed to the deal, saying the Englewood library was more convenient, the nothjersey.com story said.

The borough government will spend $10,000 a month for the remainder of 2016, and $15,000 a month for the first half of 2017 for library privileges, reported northjersey.com. The contract begins on July 1, said northjersey.com

Englewood abruptly ended borough borrowing privileges for Englewood Cliffs residents last week when library board members learned the council was negotiating a contract with Fort Lee, reported northjersey.com.
