Library Catalogs

Clams Catalog

CLAMS is the "Cape Libraries Automated Material Sharing" network which serves most of the libraries on the Cape and the Islands and provides all users with convenient and consistent access to these libraries both from terminals inside the libraries or from their home computers via the internet.

With your CLAMS card you can....

  • Search for items at any of the CLAMS libraries
  • Check which items you have out
  • Reserve library material
  • See if you owe any fines
  • Create a reading history list
  • Download free ebooks and audiobooks

You can apply for a temporary CLAMS card  online.  The temporary card will allow you to check out materials, use Overdrive and gain access to Statewide databases.  If you have questions about the temporary card, or need a permanent card for access to EPL database, please call the library for assistance at 508-945-5170.

Commonwealth eBooks (LEA)

Massachusetts libraries offer eBooks and Audiobooks through LEA, a program that makes eBooks and Audiobooks from libraries around the state available to you through the Libby app by OverDrive.

In addition to LEA,  any Massachusetts resident who has a BPL eCard have access to eBooks and comics through Hoopla, newspapers and magazines through PressReader, and audiobooks and magazines through RBDigital. All of these can be accessed through the BPL's website.

Once you borrow your eBooks and Audiobooks, you can start a digital book club with friends. Learn how to from Bustle.
