Download Library moves to Cloud Library March 1
The Download Library is moving! On March 1, 2017, the Maine InfoNet Download Library moved to a brand new e-book and eAudiobook platform called cloudLibrary. This will replace the Overdrive platform being used now. Once the system is live on March 1st, simply download the app for your device (note that the cloudLibrary will not work with e-ink Kindles (paperwhite) or with basic MP3 players that do not support apps).
To get started on your device or computer, go to http://yourcloudlibrary.com/index.php/en-us/how-it-works and follow the directions!
You can download the app, called cloudLibrary, in the Playstore for Android devices, the App Store for Apple/ iOS devices, and the Windows Store for Windows devices. For Kindle Fire devices go to http://yourcloudlibrary.com and click on the “available on Kindle Fire” link on the right side of the page.
You can also access the cloudLibrary system using a browser by going to http://download.maineinfonet.org and logging in by selecting your library from the list provided and logging in with your library card.
Note that if your card number begins with “20” it was issued from APL, if it begins with “24” it was issued from LPL. You will need to select the issuing library regardless of your current home library.
Holds and checkouts will not transfer to the new system, so any outstanding holds will need to be placed again after February 28. All items borrowed from Overdrive will be due on February 28.
