CLAMS libraries are pleased to announce that beginning November 12th, materials eligible to be renewed will be automatically extended another loan period up to three times. No more calling the library or hurrying in to return things! Exceptions are museum passes, express items, items on hold for other patrons, items already renewed three times, Interlibrary Loan materials or ebooks. Items that cannot be renewed may still accrue fines. Questions? Call your library for more information.
November’s Big Library Read is now available on OverDrive with no waiting. We hope you enjoy this month’s book.
Most CLAMS libraries are open today, but a few are closed due to power outages, including Sturgis, Centerville, West Barnstable, Marstons Mills and Hyannis. On the Vineyard West Tisbury has no power. Please check with your library before venturing out.
🚨ALERT! All CLAMS online catalogs will be offline from 9 PM on October 15th through the morning of October 16th, for a planned software upgrade.
Access to any service that requires your CLAMS login will be unavailable during this time. We apologize for any inconvenience.🚨
eBooks aren’t just a fad, they are especially useful for readers with challenges such as sight impairment, dyslexia, or those who can’t get to the library or physically hold a book . Please consider signing the American Libraries Association petition telling Macmillan publishing that limiting access to eBooks for libraries is the wrong move. You can read more about this and sign the petition by clicking the link.
The best way to explore infinity and beyond is at your library! Be sure to sign up for a library card at any CLAMS library or use our online form:https://library.clamsnet.org/selfreg.html
