  • Introducing the New CLAMS App!

    The new CLAMS app makes it easy to browse our collection, get details on items, make a selection, place a hold for later pickup, and even renew items previously checked out. You can check out eBooks and eAudiobooks with the touch of a button, then listen to them in the Libby or OverDrive app.

    We’ve also added our Featured Lists so you can browse Top Requests, Coming Soon titles or New York Times Bestsellers and request the ones you want.

    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.

    Available in the App Store and Google Play.
