Interlibrary Loan / Requesting

You may request items from home by using our online catalog. If your item is not in the Topsfield library, broaden your search to the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium. If you can’t find it there, search libraries across the state by using the Commonwealth Catalog. If you still can’t find it, contact a reference librarian. We can request an item from another state by using WorldCat.

Tough Topics

As librarians, we’re here to help, not judge. We understand that sometimes you might have a question, but really don’t want to ask. That’s okay! We’ve created a list of topics with their corresponding locations. We also have self-checkout for added privacy. Click HERE for a downloadable version.
