Overdrive/Libby Update: As of January 4, 2023, you will need to enter your library PIN to access your OverDrive/Libby account for eBooks, eAudiobooks and other OverDrive resources. All MVLC libraries are implementing this change to improve security and to better protect patron privacy. The PIN is the same password that you use to sign into your account in the library catalog.  If you don’t know your PIN or you have questions, please contact the Information Desk at 978-399-2304.

Staff Recommends: Jeanne recommends the fast paced mystery, The Paris Apartment, by Lucy Foley. “Arriving in Paris to stay with her brother Ben, Jess learns that he has gone missing, and to find him, starts digging into his life, realizing even though she has come to the City of Lights to escape her past, it’s his future hanging in the balance.”

Check out our Museum Passes page or call the Library for reservations. Unless otherwise noted, our museum passes are generously funded by the Friends of the Library.  Have you joined the Friends yet?
