Nearly all CLAMS Libraries offer free and open public wifi both inside and outside the building. Use this handy map, to locate a library near you or refer to our Member Libraries page for more information.
This video was put together by CLAMS libraries as part of a recent legislative event. Though most buildings are closed to the public, library staff continue to work hard and creatively to offer services. CLAMS library services continue to be relevant and necessary in these challenging times.
We are resilient, resourceful, responsive and relevant!
