If we do not own a specific item you are looking for or our copy is checked out, we may still be able to get it for you.
Using your library card and pin number, you can order many items from other libraries in the Metro-Boston Library Network. Just search for the item you are looking for, click on HOLD THIS FOR ME, enter your information and select Malden Public Library as your pickup destination. This is a FREE service!
If the item is not available through MBLN, come into the library or give us a call at (781) 324-0218. We may be able to locate these items through another network. It may take a little longer than ordering through Boston Public Library, but the cost is still FREE.
We can also locate magazine and journal articles for you in the same way. There is a small cost for photocopies, but we may also be able to e-mail you the article if we receive it electronically.
