Requesting Materials

The Massillon Public Library strives to have a large and diverse collection, but space and budget limits keep us from owning every item you might seek. If we do not own the book, music, or movie you need, it may be possible to borrow the item from another Ohio library in our lending network. Most of the time borrowing from this network is a free service for you. There might be photocopy charges for articles from magazines and journals, or the owning library might charge a fee for a special item. We will inform you of these charges before ordering the item.

If you are unable to locate the item you are looking for or have trouble placing a hold on an item that you found, contact the Reference Desk at 330-832-9831 ext. 312 or submit a question via our online form.
