How Do I...

Find eBooks and eAudiobooks

We now offer two eBook platforms: OverDrive and 3M Cloud Library.

Why are there two options for borrowing eBooks?
3M Cloud Library offers an easier setup process, but as a newer platform, does not have as large a selection of eBooks and audiobooks as OverDrive.
OverDrive offers Kindle books, which are not available from 3M Cloud Library.

Getting Started with OverDrive
Find eBooks, audiobooks and streaming video in our OverDrive Catalog.

First-time users:

Getting Started with 3M Cloud Library
  1. Download the app for iOS, Android, PC, or Mac.
  2. Login with your library card barcode and PIN instead of your username for best results.
  3. Browse, check out, and read.
  4. For Nooks and other eReaders, transfer via USB to your device from the PC or Mac app.

How many eBooks and/or audiobooks can I check out?
Library card holders can borrow up to 10 digital items from OverDrive and 10 from 3M Cloud Library. These do not count against the 30 item limit for physical library books and items.
