Statewide eBook Lending Program

CW MARS library cardholders can now borrow eBooks and digital audiobooks from several library systems* across Massachusetts!

In the Libby app (see above), you can add another library system (such as the Boston Public Library) using "Add a Library" under the Libby menu in the top right corner. You can then search for, borrow, and place holds on that library's digital items. Though you have to add and search each library system separately, all your holds and borrowed items will show up together in your digital catalog account.

From our Kids Digital Catalog website, follow the link to "Partner libraries" at the top to visit these collections and borrow or place holds on items.

Statewide lending is a work-in-progress and will become more integrated over time. If you have any questions, please contact our Reference Desk at 413-259-3096 or

* Participating library systems include: Boston Public Library, CLAMS Library Network, Merrimack Valley Library Consortium, Minuteman Library Network, NOBLE (North of Boston Library Exchange), Old Colony Library Network, SAILS Library Network
