Most materials circulate to provide patron use of the materials out of the library.
To borrow materials from the Mass. Trial Court Law Libraries, a library patron needs to register as a borrower in person at one of the law libraries and obtain a borrower's card. One form of identification with a current home address is necessary as well as a home telephone number to obtain a borrower's card. The borrower's card will be mailed to the home address and new borrowers will be limited to borrowing 1 item on the day of registration. After the borrower receives their card by mail, the card will need to be presented to borrow all other library materials. There will be a $2 fee for the replacement of a lost borrower card.
Patrons may choose to have a preferred contact address (different from their home address) for circulation activities such as reserves and overdue notices. Circulation notices will be e-mailed, or, if the patron has requested, mailed to the preferred address.
Library records are not public documents.
