Libby (formerly Overdrive)
(C/W MARS) Download the Libby app for audios, ebooks, and videos.  Have your C/W MARS library card number handy.  Questions: try Libby/Overdrive help or come by the library.
Made possible by the C/W MARS library network.

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

* 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
