Looking for an item that the Maynard Public Library doesn't own?
Check these catalogs in the following order:
1) Minuteman Library Network
Maynard is a member of the Minuteman Library Network, a consortium of 35 public libraries and 7 academic libraries in the Metrowest area. Most items owned by Minuteman libraries are shared between libraries and can be requested online. (Some items, such as newer DVDs and reference books however, are not requestable.) The item will be shipped to the Minuteman library of your choice. There is no charge for this service. To search the catalog, click here.
2) Commonwealth Catalog
If you cannot find your item in the Minuteman Network, your next search should be in the Commonwealth Catalog. This catalog searches the other library networks within Massachusetts. There is no fee to request items through the Commonwealth Catalog. To search, click here.
If you cannot find the item in either the Minuteman Network or through the Commonwealth Catalog, we may still be able to get the item outside of Massachusetts. Search WorldCat, fill out the form below, and a Reference librarian will be in touch with you soon.
