The library does have fiction. Most fiction is in the P section, specifically PR and PS which is found in the Language and Literature Room on the lower level of the library.
We also have a lot of fiction available as ebooks through our Overdrive subscription. Take a look at our guide for more information.
If you are looking for a particular fiction book and we don't have it, you can check if another library in Massachusetts owns the book and request to have it delivered to you. To do this go to the Commonwealth Catalog (ComCat) and do a search. Use your A number (on your ID card) and password (if it is your first time using this, it is your date of birth (YYYYMMDD). The book will be delivered to the MCLA library within a few days. If you have any trouble logging in, contact us.
