Essex Public Library

How do I request a book the library does not own?

The library always welcomes suggestions from our patrons for titles and authors. We can also borrow a book from another library via inter-library loan. You must be a resident of Essex County, have a library card and have no outstanding fines to receive this service. We will borrow up to three (3) items at a time.  A fillable form is available at the circulation desk or click below.
