The Madawaska Valley Public Library has become an integral part of the community's life. It is committed to the growth and overall benefit of its patrons and our community as a whole.

Your user ID is your membership number found on your library card. The password is the last 4 digits of the phone number you used when registering your account. Staff will monitor the reserves list to collect and check out to your account the items you have selected. You will be notified when your items are ready for pickup.
