Clinton, Essex and Franklin Libraries share a catalog that you can search. Most of the over 300,000 titles in the catalog are requestable – that means that by entering your library card number you can ask for something to be sent to your home library in our delivery van. Get started with the links below. Don’t worry if you don’t have a library card – you can still search. Visit your nearest library when you are ready to get a free library card and take advantage of everything we have available!

Search the New CEFLS Enterprise Catalog or the classic catalog. Looking for a certain type of book? You can easily find your favorite genre on our Search By Subject/Genre page. You can also search other catalogs worldwide, but you will need to ask your library for help to borrow the items you find.
Log in to the new catalog or the classic catalog (if you have a library card) to request and download materials or make lists of titles you would like to borrow.
