The Library’s contract with Overdrive (Digital Library NJ) ends on February 28, 2015, and we will be using 3M Cloud Library.
We will be holding Open House sessions on Wednesday, March 4 and Monday, March 23. They will both be 7-8:30 PM in the Community Room and registration is advised. These sessions will inform you about the Library’s new eBook lending platform, give you tips for streamlined downloading, and help you troubleshoot your own eReader device. Please bring your eReader with you to the meeting.
You will still be able to borrow up to 2 available titles from them until February 28, 2015.
We will still have OneClickDigital audiobooks and ebooks available, and you can continue to use this service as normal. OneClickDigital recently updated their website, and now the content is very easy to use. OneClickDigital’s new platform is very similar to 3M Cloud Library, which will be our new ebook service.
3M Cloud Library is a new ebook platform that the Library will be using. We expect it to go live starting March 1, 2015. As soon as we are able, we will schedule Open House sessions to tell you more about the new 3M Cloud Library.
