What is the easiest way to renew my books?
To renew your materials online, visit www.clamsnet.org/patroninfo. Enter the bar code on the back of your card (or your username), and enter your 4-digit PIN.

Select the checkboxes next to the items you would like to renew, and click renew marked. Please check that the renewals were successful. Some items may not be eligible for renewal. You can also renew items in person or by calling the library at 508-693-3366.
