Nelson residents may get a library card for free.
The yearly fee for nonresidents is $20.
The Nelson Library has a collection of over 7,00 0 items, including books, periodicals, videos, DVD’s, audio books on cassette and CD and hi speed internet service available on library computers, or you may bring your own laptop.

Click here for a searchable database of books in the Olivia Rodham Memorial Library. You may search by entering a title, author or subject
into the search box and clicking search, or you may use the pull down menu underneath the box that says ALL WORDS.

Don’t find what you’re looking for?  If the Olivia Rodham Memorial Library does not have a book in stock, we can acquire any book that is within the state library system via inter-library loan. To see what is available throughout the state visit:

You may search it by ISBN, title, author or subject.  Items ordered in the early part of the week will usually arrive on Saturday, unless they are from a University.  Items from education centers may take two weeks to arrive.

To place your order with the library, please send an email to the librarian. We will let you know as soon as possible if the book is available here, or if we need to order it. When anticipating our response time, please keep in mind the library hours.

Thank you.
