Cloud Library Replaces Overdrive on March 1

Cloud Library

Beginning March 1, Maine libraries are switching to Bibliotheca’s Cloud Library by 3M because it is more user friendly, gives us access to more titles and allows school libraries to join in on the fun!

You will be able to sync your ebooks & audiobooks between 6 devices automatically and even be able to stream audiobooks using wifi instead of downloading. We can also now add parental passwords for families. The improvements are endless!

You will need to download a “new” app called Cloud Library. Content will remain largely unchanged, but Kindle E ink devices will no longer be supported. The new app is fun and easy to use. You’ll find complete details here!
