Fitchburg, Leominster, Worcester, and many other libraries in Central and Western Massachusetts are part of the C/W MARS library network which means you can easily borrow books from other member libraries. If your local library doesn't have a book you want to read or use for class, you can place a hold on the book directly from the shared library catalog. It will be sent to your local library for you to pick up!
The Minuteman Library Network (MLN) is a consortium of 43 libraries with 62 locations and a Central Site staff that work collectively to provide excellent service to its library users. The members include 36 public and 7 college libraries in the Metrowest region of Massachusetts. It functions similarly to C/W MARS.
