Library Cards: Any resident of West Newbury over the age of five can obtain a library card at the library with proof of residency. A parent/guardian must be present and sign the application for any child under thirteen. This card allows a patron to use the facilities of our, and any other Merrimack Valley Library Consortium (MVLC) library, as long as the patron is in good standing.
