Get an ecard, get an ebook

If you don’t yet have a CLAMS library card, you can now register online and start downloading ebooks or use databases immediately. Here’s how:

You will need a computer or cell phone and access to your email account.
1. Go to
2. Fill out the form and submit. The screen will refresh, with your name, new card number and username. Print the info, take a screenshot or jot down your new card number – you’ll need it in just a moment.
3. Click the link in the first bullet point to log in and create a PIN/Password:
Login to My Account and establish a PIN (Password) Scroll down to and click Did you forget your PIN/Password? Enter your new card number.
4. Check your email for a link to set your PIN/Password.

Your ecard will now be valid until June 30th and will give you access to materials at OverDrive for eBooks, eAudiobooks and eMagazines (when asked for your library, select “CLAMS Library Patrons”). It also includes all Massachusetts Library Databases (select any library to begin). Individually owned library databases such as Hoopla are not included. Please visit your local CLAMS library with a photo ID before June 30th to upgrade to a regular card with full privileges.

If you will be using your phone or an eReader, we suggest you download the Libby App.

    • Hi Myles,
      CLAMS has extended expired cards to mid May while the libraries are closed. Your card should work at this time.

    I cannot find the ebook I downloaded. I was directed to Holds but only the Harry Potter book was available, not The Flight Attendent. Where can I find the book?

  5. I am unable to log in, does not accept my pin#

  6. I ordered a book thru overdrive but was not notified when it became available. I have been placed back on the queue and am concerned that I will miss the notification.
    The book I am waiting for is Vince Flynn “Consent to Kill” Please assist.
    I may have put in a different Email in the request
