Electronic databases have replaced many of our research magazines. You can search them from home on your computer and many times can get the full text of articles from many sources.
The Millicent Library through its own subscriptions as well as some subsidized by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, provides access to a variety of databases. Some of these will require you to put in your barcode. The ones from the State will detect your location and will let you in without a code.
Until we revise our pages, your best bet is to go to the Massachusetts Library Page
Download e-Books and Audiobooks
You can download books to your e-reader and mp3 players from the library’s Overdrive collection. Once you get there there are pages with tutorials for your particular device as well as some videos on how to get the books. You need to have your library card barcode handy.
The Millicent Library, through the Friends of the Library as well as other donations, subscribes to a number of museum and park passes.
Check our Museum Passes page for more information.
Passes available for all certified adult SAILS patrons with a fine free library card presented by the card holder in person, except as noted. As the passes are very expensive, they are limited to adult patrons.
We cannot reserve passes. Passes that are taken from you at the museum don’t have to be returned. Passes that get checked out must be picked up at and returned the following library day to the Millicent Library (or as noted on your date due slip). $5.00 per day charge if overdue. One pass only per adult. NO RESERVES.
You may see a list of all the SAILS libraries’ passes and can even reserve some at libraries that have the software for reservations
