The core service of the Library is to provide reading material for circulation. Nowadays, we include listening and viewing materials as well. The point is, we want you to read. We can't force you to read, but you really should. People who read are smarter and live longer. Science says so.
The C/W MARS Catalog provides access to all of our holdings as well as those of nearly every library in central and western Massachusetts. Log in, place holds, and we'll let you know when your material arrives. If you can't find something in the catalog, don't give up hope! At the bottom of the C/W MARS catalog screen, you'll find a link to the Commonwealth Catalog, which allows us to bring in materials from other library consortia in the state. And if you can't find what you are looking for there, give us a call!
The Overdrive Digital Catalog will take you to where all of our digital loans live. You can use your computer, tablet, or smartphone to access hundreds of thousands of e-books and e-audiobooks. You can be a library patron without ever stepping foot in the building! Welcome to the 21st century!
Kanopy allows you to stream video with your library card. It is stocked with classics, award-winners, festival favorites, and other thought-provoking cinema and TV.
The Research Databases are databases...for research. Whether for school, business, or personal curiosity, you'll find a variety of curated sources for journal, magazine, and newspaper articles.
We offer a variety of discount passes to state parks, museums, and such. We share these with the other libraries in the Blackstone Valley, and they share theirs with us!
