Readers Resources

We always appreciate your recommendations for book purchases for the Whitinsville Social Library collection.

Mostly read new books? Your absolute best bet is to place holds on books in the C/W MARS Library Catalog. All public libraries in the C/W MARS network are required to share almost every item in their collection, so placing a hold is the way to go. Ask the WSL staff for help.

Waiting for a book with a long hold list? Ask WSL staff to download the book to one of WSL's Nook or Kindle eReaders for you to borrow. Presto! No more waiting!

Have a specific interest, favorite authors, or book you want? Search the Library Catalog for books at other locations and request the books be sent to WSL. WSL's book budget remains relatively low, so make use of all the resources available to you!
