Introducing MAX - A Countywide Book Sharing Service

Scottsdale Public Library is now a member of MAX, a countywide book sharing service for participating library systems in Maricopa County. With your Scottsdale Public Library card, you can search the MAX catalog for titles not available through Scottsdale. If a copy is available from one of the participating libraries, you can place a request and it will be sent to your preferred pick-up branch in Scottsdale.
