The Cape Libraries Automated Materials Sharing (CLAMS) catalog is the primary catalog of the Nantucket Atheneum.
CLAMS is the shared library catalog of the Cape and Islands Libraries Automated Materials Sharing Network, a non-profit, cooperative association of libraries on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket.
Member libraries share resources — over 1.6 million items including books, magazines, and non-print resources — through a computer network with terminals located in each member library and also through an online portal.
A CLAMS library card allows patrons to borrow books and other materials from all member libraries.
Book recommendations for children including Nantucket Atheneum librarian selections, New York Times bestsellers, and award winners.
Book recommendations for teens and links to popular book lists including Indie Next, Great Graphic Novels, and award winners.
The 2020 summer reading program is going virtual! Register and log your reading to earn fun badges online. The goal is a total of 20 hours of reading books, magazines, ebooks, or listening to audiobooks. Read to yourself or have others read to you, it all counts towards your goal.
I’ve worked as a volunteer for the library for 10 years. I have never found a more pleasant, dedicated and professional group of people. The Atheneum and its staff are a treasure for this town.
