The library's e-book, e-audiobook, and e-magazine collection are moving from three platforms to one.

Access to cloudLibrary will end on August 2, 2021

E-books currently available in cloudLibrary will be moving to OverDrive.

These titles will then be available in OverDrive's "Libby" app and on the OverDrive website.

Holds will not transfer over from cloudLibrary to OverDrive.
To minimize the impact of this, holds in cloudLibrary will be decreased to 1 hold per patron on January 19.

Checked-out items will not transfer from cloudLibrary to OverDrive.
To minimize the number of lost check-outs, check-outs will be limited to 1 title per patron beginning July 12.

Don't Leave Your cloudLibrary Holds and Saved Items Behind!

  • Your holds and borrowing history from cloudLibrary will not transfer to OverDrive.
  • Go to "My Books" in the cloudLibrary app and check your Holds, History, and Saved items for any titles you will want to remember when you move to OverDrive.
  • If you like, use this worksheet to write down your holds or any other titles in your History or Saved Items that you would like to remember for use in OverDrive.
  • Then, download the Libby app or visit the OverDrive website to re-place any holds or check out e-books.
