CHANGES COMING TO E-BOOKS

cloudLibrary and RBDigital are ending in early 2021.

E-books, e-audiobooks, and e-magazines are moving to OverDrive and the Libby app.

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

Access to cloudLibrary will end in early 2021

In the first quarter of 2021, the e-books and e-audiobooks 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. This change will be taking place no earlier than late January 2021.

Please note that 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.

You Can Start Using OverDrive Today!

Don't Leave Your Holds and Saved Items Behind!

OverDrive will be a fresh start for cloudLibrary users. Your holds and borrowing history will not transfer to the new service.

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.

E-magazines will be available in OverDrive and the Libby app beginning February 1, 2021

When all the updates have been made, e-books, e-audiobooks, and e-magazines will all be available in the Libby app.
