How do I request a library item?
After searching the catalog and finding your title, look for the checkmark to request. It will then ask you for your library card number and PIN. Make sure you choose the correct library for picking up items.

If all Needham copies are out, or Needham does not own a copy, you can request it as you would any other item. Your request will go to another library in the Minuteman Library Network and be transferred here via the State delivery system. Expect it to take about a week to arrive. (exception: New DVDs and Blu-rays less than 6 months old are not available on Network Transfer. They are reserved for the owning library’s patrons for the first six months). See the Interlibrary Loan section for further information.
