Library Consortium Borrowing

GMILCS, Inc. LogoThe Merrimack Public Library is a member of GMILCS, a non-profit consortium of 11 public and academic libraries in NH sharing an integrated system, materials, and access to some online resources. GMILCS members' cards are known as "Common Borrower Cards". This means you may borrow most materials from these other consortium libraries. The GMILCS, Inc. consortium serve the libraries of Amherst, Bedford, Derry, Goffstown, Hooksett, Manchester, Merrimack, Milford, Salem, Windham, New England College, and the New Hampshire Institute of Art.  

Please note the following:  

  • You must have your active library card when visiting other libraries, and your account must be in good standing (if in doubt, verify with the Circulation Desk).  
  • A few libraries restrict what kind of materials can be borrowed. Please note that Merrimack's museum passes or telescope cannot be shipped or returned to any other library.
  • You may request items to be shipped to Merrimack, or, you may visit the participating library and checkout items there (restrictions may apply). 
  • You may also request that an item be shipped to a particular location for pickup.
