Reserve Passes from the MFPL!
Adult patrons with library cards in good standing may reserve passes remotely on the library website. Enter your full library barcode number (with no spaces) and your PIN (usually the last 4-digits of your phone number). Please arrange to retreive reserved passes early and/or cancel reservations so that others may use our passes. Patrons may need to leave their library card at the desk, so please bring a library card to the Circulation Desk when picking up the pass. Click on this link and follow instructions. Phone reservations may be made by calling (508) 758-4171. We appreciate your cooperation.
