Cloud Library Focus for 2018
We are making some big changes to our eBook collection at the end of 2017. As of January 1st, we will no longer be providing access to OverDrive and the Ontario Library Service Consortium, the shared collection of eBooks and eAudiobooks. We will be focusing our resources on the Cloud Library collection that is already available to all our library users. This will mean shorter wait times for the newest books, fewer places to search for your items, and extended borrowing periods of three weeks instead of just two weeks. Make sure you start placing any new holds in the Cloud Library starting November before all holds in OverDrive and the Consortium are cancelled on January 1st, 2018.
The Cloud Library app can be downloaded for free to any device or computer and once you log in with your library card, you can start reading and listening to any available title. If you want more information about the changeover, please contact us at the library (905-642-7323 ext. 5230) or come into Drop-in Tech Help on Wednesday afternoons from 2-5 p.m.
