• Download Ebooks and Audiobooks!


    By downloading the Libby or Overdrive app onto your electronic device you can set up an account that gives you access to the New Hampshire State Library Downloadable Book Consortium.

    You will need to know your 6-digit library account number that was given to you when you signed up at Maxfield Public Library.

    For those patrons who know their account numbers, be sure to add a 90 or 900 to the beginning of your account number to make a 6-digit number.

    For those who do not know their library account numbers, please feel free to email us at maxlib@comcast.net or call the library at 798-5153 and leave a message. We will work over the upcoming days to get back to you with your account information.

Face coverings MUST BE WORN in all areas of the library by patrons age 5 and older. The Library will provide face coverings for patrons who do not have one. Hand sanitizer will be provided in all areas within of the Library. Staff will also ensure that social distancing measures are being followed.

Thank you for your continued support and patience during these unprecedented times. We can’t wait to see you all again!

Contact Free Services are still available!

Maxfield Public Library still offers contact-free pick up services!

You can place your reserves through our online catalog at www.maxfieldlibrary.com (you will need your full library account number and PIN) or by calling the library at 798-5153 and speaking to a Maxfield Public Library staff member. Once your order is prepared, a staff member will call you to arrange for a pick up time.

We ask that you do not leave requests in a voicemail. Instead, a staff member will call you back as soon as possible to help you directly.

All returned materials will be quarantined for at least 72 hours. With limited staffing we can only allow up to 10 items to be checked out at once.

Follow our social media and check our website for updates. If you have any questions, please email Library Director Dena Norman at maxlib@comcast.net.
