Request an Item

Request an Item Through MVLC

Using your library card and our catalog, you can request an item from any of the 36 libraries in the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium.

Request a Commonwealth Catalog Item

Patrons can also use the Commonwealth Catalog to search other Massachusetts libraries outside of the MVLC. Just choose your library, and enter your library card number and PIN to begin.

Requests Beyond Massachusetts

For items that aren’t in either the MVLC or Commonwealth Catalog, or for requests that were unable to be filled, our Interlibrary Loan Department can request items on your behalf. If the above two options have not worked for you, please use the form below to let us know what you’re looking for. A $5.00 postage fee will apply to non-Chelmsford residents, and must be paid before the request is submitted.
