Tewksbury Public Library services are available to anyone who enters the building; a valid library card or identification is required to take materials out of the building. For the fastest service, an individual should present their own library card each time materials are checked out. If the individual forgets to bring their library card, the individual can present government-issued photo identification in lieu of the library card. Each library card holder must comply with any borrowing restrictions linked to the borrower's card. Residents of other Merrimack Valley Library Consortium (MVLC) libraries must present a current, valid library card or identification from their hometown library. Please see our Library Card Policy for complete details about acquiring and using a TPL Library Card.
The Tewksbury Library is a member of the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium (MVLC), which is made up of 35 libraries in Massachusetts' Merrimack Valley.
