Chatham Courier Online–available now!

Patrons of the Chatham and Canaan Public Libraries can now peruse the Chatham Courier Online, for free, using your library card to log in. Please note that individual articles are uploaded to the site on an ongoing basis, so while the paper edition is published once a week, in this online version the articles are dated as they appear, throughout the week.

The Chatham Courier Online is text-only, no ads, no photos or illustrations. It is searchable, and covers from August 2009 to the present. (We have microfilm of the Courier going back to the 19th century at the Library.) You can sign up for an email alert, to receive a notice whenever a particular name or phrase appears in the Courier.

On this site, you can also read 28 other magazines, through the link on the left sidebar called “America’s News Magazines”. Some of the titles included are: The Atlantic, The New Yorker, Field and Stream, The National Review, Popular Science, Slate, and Smithsonian. They are also searchable, have no ads or illustrations, and can have email alerts set for them, so read on! This service is made possible by the Friends of the Chatham Public Library.

eBooks for Kids!

The library has expanded services with a new digital collection website experience just for kids. The main MHLS Digital Download Collection now has a separate site to provide a safe and easy browsing experience for kids.

Libraries recognize the need to provide a safe environment for kids to browse library materials. Just as the children’s section of the physical library has its own place, the same experience is now available in the digital collection for kids eBooks and audiobooks. Browsing can be done by subject, reading level or interest level. Check out the Kid’s eReading Room.
