September is Library Card Sign-up Month
The value of today’s libraries goes beyond books. Librarians are leaders in their communities – helping people of any age to find what they need to help improve their quality of life. This September, the CLAMS Library Network is joining with the American Library Association and libraries nationwide for Library Card Sign-up Month, an initiative to make sure that every student has the most important school supply of all – a free library card.

The CLAMS Library Network asks, “What’s Your Four?”
Children who read just four books over the summer fare better on reading-comprehension tests in the fall than their peers who read one or no books. Because of this, the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) and CLAMS libraries are challenging residents to choose four books to read over the summer months, and to share their selections on social media through a campaign called “What’s Your Four?”
We are excited to announce that the CLAMS Library Network will participate in OverDrive’s Summer Read program.
OverDrive Summer Read June 7 – August 7
OverDrive Summer Read is an annual program designed to encourage students to keep reading all year long. The titles selected can supplement other summer reading programs, and will offer free, simultaneous access to users from June 7th–August 7th.
