Library Services Update

The Library may be closed, but your access is still open! Your Librarians are hard at work curating new content and planning virtual programs to sate your intellectual curiosity.

Keep reading for info on this week's newly curated content and updates to existing services. Have questions about these or other services, need a library card, or just need to connect? Don't hesitate to reach out!

Remember that overdue fines will continue to be waived until further notice and that our 3 book drops (2 in the Library parking lot; 1 at the fire station on Naticook Road) are open for returns. Library kits should be returned by calling the library at 603-424-5021 (ext 101 or 102) during our operating hours.
Book Clubs

Looking to start a book club, plan your next club read, or simply spend less on book club titles? Our staff are happy to find and order multiple copies of your next book club read through our recently reinstated Interlibrary Loan service!

Email our Interlibrary Loan coordinator at cbernard@merrimacklibrary.org to request multiple copies of your book club's next title. Please be advised that titles borrowed via Interlibrary Loan may take up to two weeks to become available.

Title of the Week

Sleeping Giants
by Sylvain Neuvel
 
"This is the first in the Themis Files trilogy, and it’s written in the form of interviews and journal entries, making for a fast-paced read. As someone who doesn’t read much science fiction, I found this to be a great entry point. There are lots of big ideas, but the story remains approachable and fun."
