Westborough Public Library Item Loan Guidelines

                                           Revised 2019

For the quickest circulation experience, please bring your C/W MARS library card with you.  Library material may alternatively be checked out with valid ID and/or confirmation of multiple account details, but we encourage you to bring your card.  Hold items may be picked up by any member of a household with a valid library account (unless otherwise noted on patron account). The fee for a library card replacement is $1.00 or one non-perishable food item to be donated to a local charity.
