Beginning this week patrons of Topsham Public Library are able to request items from other libraries using Minerva! Though we, and many other libraries, have begun using interlibrary loan again, not all libraries are up and running with the interlibrary loan service, so please be patient.
If you requested items from other libraries before the shutdown, those items should be still on your account and will be on their way shortly, hopefully.
If there is an item you’ve been wanting to read/watch/listen to, but it’s not in our collection and another library has it – you can now request it!! Though borrowing and requesting has resumed for most libraries, your requests might be denied if the item is owned by a library that has not reopened yet.
You may request an item by:
- using the card catalog (aka Minerva).
- calling us at 725-1727 and we can walk you through the Minerva process or we can just request the item for you.
- asking us to request something for you the next time you visit Topsham Public Library.
If you have any questions or problems related to requesting please don’t hesitate to call us at 725-1727!
