Library Basics

Residents of Topsfield can apply for a library card at the Topsfield Town Library in-person or using our online library card application!

Your library card is good at the 36 member libraries of the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium. You can order items from any library in the consortium, for pickup right here in Topsfield! Simply search our catalog to begin! Our MVLC Mobile app allows you to check your account, place holds, access your library card, and more!

If your item isn't available in the MVLC, we are able to request items from throughout Massachusetts through the Commonwealth Catalog; your item will be delivered to Topsfield for pickup! Of course, we also consider suggestions.
