Have you tried our CLAMS Network App yet?
Recently updated, the app now supports digital cards and self-checkout at participating libraries. Use the events calendar to find library programs and filter to those that most interest you.
Our app makes it easy to browse the collection, get details, make a selection, and place a hold for later pickup. You can check out eBooks, eAudiobooks and eMagazines with the touch of a button, then listen to or view them in the Libby App.
If you’re on the go and searching for the nearest CLAMS library, check out the Library Info feature, which shows locations nearest to you with links to their websites.
The Manage Accounts tool lets you add multiple library cards — a great feature for families! Don’t have a library card? Request one through the app and access econtent right away.
The Commonwealth Catalog is back! The majority of libraries in the state are now actively participating. For more information, visit www.commonwealthcatalog.org.

Make sure your kids have the most important school supply of all—a library card! Get one this September and kick off the school year right. Do it from home here and pick up your card when you go to the library.
In case you were wondering, because so many of our patrons enjoy this service, ComCat is taking a “pause” but will be back in September. With over 350 member libraries at varying stages of opening it make take some time to get back to full speed. We appreciate your understanding and will keep you posted.
