Minerva LogoThe Thomas Memorial Library participates in Minerva, a consortium of nearly 60 Maine libraries, including public, academic, school, and special libraries. The Minerva catalog includes over six million items—not only books but also DVDs, magazines, audiobooks, and music CDs.

You can search the catalog by author, title, subject, keyword, and material type. See our Catalog Tutorials page for help.

The button above will allow you to search only items in the Thomas Memorial Library’s collection. To search other libraries, simply drop down the menu bar under Select Library and scroll to select a specific library, or to the top to select —ALL MINERVA LOCATIONS— (see image below.)
