We can get that for you through Interlibrary Loan!

The Northborough Free Library is part of a regional, state, and national network of libraries that shares books, movies, journal articles, and other materials across the continental US. If you were not able to find what you wanted in the C/W MARS catalog, we can help you find it in another library network.
Call us at 508-393-5025 ext 5, email or use the Interlibrary Loan Form to get the process started.
Try your search on the Commonwealth Catalog:
Link to Commonwealth Catalog Search
Formally known as the Virtual Catalog, the Commonwealth Catalog searches across all the library networks in Massachusetts. Simply start with a search, and then request it! Many Commonwealth Catalog materials should arrive at the library for you within two weeks. They are loaned to you for 3 weeks with no renewals.
Some things to know about interlibrary loan:

  • Things take a bit longer to get here when they are coming from libraries outside of C/W MARS. Although most materials we request arrive within 2 weeks, it may take up to 6 weeks. Please let us know if something is time dependent.
  • Interlibrary loans are not always renewable. Please ask us at least 3 days before the due date if you think you may need to extend the loan.
  • Almost all items published within the current year are not available for loan. If what you're looking for is new, please let us know, or fill out the Suggest a Title form.
  • At this time, we cannot request ebooks, eaudio, nor any other digital media outside of C/W MARS. More digital material may be available for loan with an eCard from the Boston Public Library.
