cloudLibrary is our new e-book/e-audiobook service. It replaced Axis360 and the content was moved over. In addition, we moved the e-audiobooks from Overdrive to cloudLibrary; the e-books will continue to be ordered and available in Overdrive and there are no plans to get rid of them.
cloudLibrary has over 140,000 licenses for e-books and e-audiobooks. The titles include multiple copies of current bestsellers and popular author backruns. And, you can make title suggestions in the cloudLibrary app!
On March 13, 2019, the cloudLibrary app will get an update to improve service to our members (they listened to your suggestions!). The app will update on your device the same way other app updates do depending on how you have it set up on your device (automatically or manually). Some of the improvements are author links, series information, better filtering, push notifications, and an updated appearance.
