Announcing New Expanded eBook Access for Library Patrons!

Now there are more ways than ever to access ebooks and other online content with your local library card! The Vineyard Haven Public Library, along with the CLAMS sharing consortium of which we are a part of, is excited to be part of a pilot program to share ebooks with four other Massachusetts libraries. Now anyone with a CLAMS public library card (which is all libraries on the island) are able to borrow digital titles (including ebooks, eaudiobooks and online magazines) from other Massachusetts library networks, such as MLN, OCLN, SAILS and CWMARS. Library patrons will continue to use or the mobile app Libby to request and download ebooks. The only change is that now when one logs on there will be the option at the top of the page to sign in, with one’s library card number and PIN, to additional libraries online ebook catalogs. This exciting new sharing opportunity is the first step in an eventual statewide digital sharing catalog, offering a better range and selection of digital titles to all library users. If you would like help access ebooks and other online materials please don’t hesitate to contact your local librarian today! Tech help appointments are available; email or call 508-696-4211 for logon help to or to set up an appointment.
