The West Dennis Library is committed to providing service to our community in the most safe and responsible manner for our patrons, staff, and volunteers. As we continue to monitor the pandemic, it is hard to ignore the increase in local COVID-19 cases as social events move indoors and the holiday season arrived. The West Dennis Library has made the difficult decision to revert to curbside/contactless services only for the foreseeable future. We believe this is the best way to continue supporting our community while doing out part to protect the health of our families, friends, and neighbors. 

Please keep in mind that even though our doors are closed, we are still here for you, and we hope you will take advantage of the following services:

  • CURBSIDE PICKUP
    Curbside pickup is available Mon/Wed/Fri/Sun from 11am-2pm. Please place your orders in advance through your online account, or by calling the Library at (508) 398-2050 during the hours above. You can request books, DVDs, audiobooks, or anything available on our shelves for immediate pickup, or items from other CLAMS libraries (allow 1-2 weeks for delivery). 

  • BROWSING BY PHONE
    If you prefer browsing rather than requesting specific titles, please call the Library at (508) 398-2050 on Mon/Wed/Fri/Sun between 11am-2pm and we will be happy to browse our shelves for you and select some books or DVDs to suit your interests. These items are available for same-day curbside pickup. 

  • eBOOKS & eAUDIOBOOKS
    CLAMS libraries have a huge selection of eBooks and eAudiobooks available to download for free. The easiest way to access these items is through the Libby app (instructions can be found HERE). Instructions for how to access free eBooks and eAudiobooks on a variety of devices can be found HERE.

  • PRINTING & FAXES
    Printing and faxing services are available by appointment. Please call the Library on Mon/Wed/Fri from 11am-2pm to make arrangements to use this service.

  • VIRTUAL PROGRAMS
    Cape and Massachusetts libraries host a variety of virtual programming for patrons of all ages. Many of these programs can be attended by residents anywhere in the State. To access a complete listing of virtual library programs, please visit this website. We encourage you to support our wider library community by attending these programs!

  • REFERENCE & ACCOUNT HELP
    If you have reference questions or need assistance managing your library account or requesting other information, please call the Library at (508) 398-2050. We are staffed and ready to answer the phone on Mon/Wed/Fri/Sun from 11am-2pm. 

  • 24 HOUR WIFI
    Wireless Internet is available to use from our Library parking lot 24 hours a day. The name of our network is 'wdenlib' and no password or library card number are required to access the wifi. 

  • ONLINE NEWSPAPERS & DATABASES
    Our library patrons have access to a variety of online newspapers and databases. Click here for our current newspapers and databases. Click here to access the historical archives of The Barnstable Patriot and The Register

  • ONLINE MAGAZINES
    CLAMS libraries have a subscription to over 50 popular magazine titles, which are always available and never have a waiting list to browse the latest issue. Click here to see a full list of magazines and read them at home. 

While we would much rather see you all face-to-face and keep our doors open to the community, we believe that providing contactless service is the best course of action as we face this challenging winter to come. We hope all out patrons stay healthy and safe!

 

Sincerely,

West Dennis Library staff & trustees
