How to Use the Online Catalog

Your personal library account is accessible to you through our online catalog, where you can place holds, renew items, and create lists. 

You can access the catalog at: https://willmstwn.cwmars.org/eg/opac/home

 

Alternatively, you can also download the CW MARS app on iOS or Android devices.

To log in to your library account, on our website or in the CW MARS app, you will need your library card number (with no spaces) and your PIN.  If you have trouble logging in, just give the library a call at (413) 458-5369 and we can reset your PIN.
