Library Book Group

Join us for coffee and discussion on the last Wednesday of every month at 10:00 am. All are welcome. Call the reference librarian for more information about this month's selection.

Downloadable eBooks and More

Cohasset residents are able to access the Commonwealth eBook Collections, a state-wide program offering eBooks from BiblioBoard , EBL, and Axis 360. Search for a book, check it out and download materials to your device. The Commonwealth eBook Collection began as the MA eBook Project which was brought to you by the Massachusetts Library System in partnership with the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners and your local library, funded, in part, by the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Express Line Check Out

Using the library's new self-checkout computer is fast and easy, and staff is available to assist anyone who might like a quick tutorial. Our new self-checkout station also includes a fees payment option that accepts both cash and credit. We encourage you to try it!
