CW MARS Libby Reciprocal Lending Agreement

You can now use your CW MARS library card to borrow eBooks, audiobooks, and streaming movies, television series, and Great Courses from other library networks in Massachusetts.

In addition to using Libby through CW MARS (http://cwmars.overdrive.com/), you can now also log into:

Boston Public Library – https://bpl.overdrive.com/

CLAMS – https://clamsnet.overdrive.com/

Merrimack Valley Library Consortium – https://mvlc.overdrive.com/

Minuteman Library Network – https://minuteman.overdrive.com/

NOBLE – https://noble.overdrive.com/

Old Colony Library Network – https://ocln.overdrive.com/

SAILS – https://sails.overdrive.com/

On the “Sign In” page, you will see a box that asks you to “Select Your Library from the List Below.” CW MARS patrons should choose “CW MARS Patrons” from the list. Then you can enter your library card barcode to log in.

This process is the same regardless of which library network you are logging into.

There is no “single sign-on.” You will have to sign into each library network separately to access that library network’s eBooks and audiobooks.

You can borrow eBooks and audiobooks from the other library networks. The loan periods are subject to the local rules of that library network and not to the rules of CW MARS.
