Local Libraries

C/W MARS Library Network

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!
