Services | Borrowing

All Massachusetts residents who reside in cities and towns with state certified libraries may borrow or request materials from the Leominster Public Library.  Residents of communities with closed or decertified libraries may  not borrow or request materials.

Anyone wishing to borrow materials will need a library card issued either by the Leominster Public Library or by another public C/W MARS member library in Central Massachusetts.

If any item you are looking for has been borrowed by someone else or is not owned by the library, we can obtain it for you through network transfer/inter-library loan. Ask a Librarian for more information.
