CLAMS Introduces New App

October, 2020:  We are re-posting this blog about the CLAMS app that debuted in the spring because we have received several questions recently.  We hope it helps!

CLAMS is proud to introduce the new CLAMS Library Network app! Available for iOS and Android, this app has a broad range of features and functions that will make your library experience a whole lot simpler.

Our 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.

If you’re on the go and searching for the nearest CLAMS library, check out the Library Info feature, which shows location addresses and hours nearest to you with links to their websites. 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 now in the App Store and Google Play
Search for the CLAMS Library Network to download to your mobile device.

This app replaces the current app which is no longer supported as of May 1.

    I have successfully downloaded the new app, but I cannot figure out how to order an ebook, where can I get that information?

      I downloaded the app but it doesn’t seem to connect with Libby so has no idea what holds or previous books I have read.

        Hi Jean,
        I inquired with the CLAMS office about that and they replied, “No, the app does not connect with Libby. The Digital Download button on the home screen links to the Overdrive web site in a browser window. She can manage her digital loans that way from within Capira or continue to use the Libby app.” I hope this helps.

    Hello Helen. We are glad to hear you successfully downloaded the app. Click on “Digital Downloads” and you will be brought to the opening screen of Overdrive/Libby where you can search for eBooks and audiobooks. If you scroll down the page a little then you will see “Meet Libby” and you’ll notice all the book jackets say either ebook or audiobook below them. If I can be of further assistance, you can call 508-457-2555 or email info@falmouthpubliclibrary.org. All the best, Faith Lee, Reference Librarian
