About Us



The Morris Automated Information Network (MAIN) is a consortium of 38 public libraries located in Morris, Somerset and Warren Counties. MAIN’s mission is to lead and encourage collaboration, resource sharing, staff development and innovation by providing high quality, cost effective shared services to member libraries for their communities. MAIN aspires to help member libraries and the communities they serve to readily access a rich spectrum of resources.

Together, MAIN libraries serve over half a million residents of all ages. Patrons of member libraries have access to over 2.8 million items including eBooks, eAudiobooks, Blu-rays, DVDs, music, museum passes, videogames, and of course, books. MAIN libraries also offer a substantial amount of programming, public meeting space, research assistance, lectures, cultural events, public classes, art exhibitions and more.

MAIN was originally created in 1980 to help oversee the initial automation of local library systems. Over time, it has evolved into a full-fledged public library consortium incorporated as a nonprofit organization which offers its members cost-sharing opportunities, library automation services, technical support, and an organizational structure conducive to collaboration and efficient management of tax dollars.

MAIN is also a proud member of the NJ Open Borrowing program, which enables MAIN library patrons to borrow materials from all other libraries outside of MAIN participating in Open Borrowing.
