The Riverdale Public Library is a member of MAIN which is composed of 38 public libraries in Morris County and surrounding areas. Each library is separate and independent and is supported by its own community. However, the libraries share the network and circulation system supported by MAIN. In addition, the libraries combine to purchase special online resources. Each MAIN library also shares its resources with other MAIN libraries.
