Additional Services from MLNV

  • hoopla – To access hoopla you must first register using your library card number and a personal e-mail. Make sure to write down your username and password for future use.
  • Request an interlibrary loan (ILL) – ILL is a service that allows a patron of one library to borrow materials that are owned by another library. If MLNV doesn’t have an item you’d like, inquire at the main circulation desk to fill out the request form in person, or you can complete it online!
  • One-on-One Research appointments – Get help with your next school assignment. We offer individual appointments (up to one hour) with students to identify useful resources, learn about research databases, or just get started in the Library.
  • Schedule a curbside pickup – Place your books on hold using your library account, the myLibro app, or by calling us at 610-759-4932. Once you receive a notification from us letting you know that your books are ready, set up a pickup appointment!
  • Tech appointments – Call the library or stop by the main circulation desk to set up on a appointment with our Technology specialist!
