Library Status

The library building is open to the public and waiting to welcome you.

We are here to help!

We are happy to help you find great books to read and movies to watch, available with contact-free curbside pickup!


Library staff is available to select books, DVDs and other materials from our collection for you, based on your personal preferences!

We also have activity packets and crafts for kids.

Fill out this form, or just give us a call, and we will get to work picking out some new and exciting choices, just for you. Once we have your items ready we will call you to schedule a curbside pickup time. It couldn't be easier!

You can also browse the catalog yourself and place holds online or using the new CLAMS Library app.

Information correction


We understand that a little earlier this week some misinformation went out in The Cranberry Scoop, newsletter of the Dennis Senior Center. Unfortunately, none of the Dennis Libraries are open to the public right now nor are we offering browsing of collections. However, we are happily continuing with curbside pickup service. Also, here at Dennis Public Library feel free to check out our books on display in the windows behind the curbside pickup table in our parking lot. If you see any book on display that interests you, give us a call, and we will put it in your curbside order pickup.
