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!

View our Postcrossing Display in the Lobby

Postcrossing is a non-profit organization whose goal is to get people to send and receive actual, written postcards to and from other members around the world. The library has had an account for about four months–a display of the postcards we received can be viewed in the lobby. We plan to set up a monthly Postcrossing Club for members to share postcards they’ve received, and to swap blank postcards to send. You can set up your free account by going to Postcrossing, where you will also find out more information about how it works. If you have questions about Postcrossing or our plans for the club, please email Rachel Davis.
