SUMMER READING

Summer reading books for Miles River Middle School and Hamilton-Wenham High School, may be requested through the library's online catalog. Find your grade below for Fall 2018. Click on a title to place your hold. You will be prompted for your library card barcode number, and your PIN (the last 4 digits of your telephone number unless you have logged in to your account and changed it). If all our copies are checked out, but the book is currently on-shelf at one of the other libraries in our consortium, it will take about 3 to 4 days for it to travel here to the H-W Library. You may elect to receive notification of your item's arrival by phone call, email, or text. To change your notification method  log in to your library account. After receiving notification of arrival you will have 7 days to check out the book at the circulation desk before it returns to the owning library.
