Books & Resources

Two years ago, Haverhill Library received a grant from the Cogswell Benevolent Trust to fund our conversion to the Apollo Integrated Library System. The new system will allow patrons to view our card catalog online from their home computers and to reserve and check out books as well. The new system will also facilitate library management and administration.

This new system is a work in progress! If you don’t see what you’re looking for, check out other resources below or Contact Us.
