Many circulating materials can be renewed. Those that are non-renewable are museum passes and trade paperbacks. Renew materials at the Library, by phone at 978.356.6648 or through our online catalog. You may renew children’s materials by calling 978.412.8713.
Most fines on overdue materials are waived, except DVDs and videos, which are $1.00 per day. A fine of $5.00 is charged for overdue museum passes. Borrowing privileges may be suspended at all libraries in the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium (MVLC) if fines are owed or materials are not returned.
A patron in good standing may borrow a reasonable number of items at one time. However, we discourage checking out more than 3 items on the same subject all at once.
