“Cloud Library” eBooks Coming to your Living Room

If you can’t make it to the December 4 event, the Library District website has tutorials and Frequently Asked Questions on the main home page.  Go to www.pinalcountyaz.gov and in the blue stack of links on the left side, click Library.  On the library home page, you’ll find the information about the 3M Cloud Library conveniently featured in the center right section.

Users can download up to three eBooks at a time and the ‘check out’ period is three weeks per book.  Extremely popular books may be wait-listed for a short time.  This is because just like stocking hard-copy books on shelves, publishers require libraries to abide by a ‘one copy/one user’ model.  The library licenses a certain quantity of eligible downloads.  Once the quota is reached, you would have to place the item on your hold list and wait until it is available.

The Apache Junction Public Library and the Casa Grande Public Library entered into an agreement for a different eBook platform and those locations have eBook capabilities already.  This will be a brand new service for the remaining 10 libraries in Pinal County.

The Cloud Library application will host more than 400 titles at launch with more titles being added in the months and weeks to follow.

If you don’t currently have a library card and you want to obtain one, go to http://goo.gl/AHXL1 to learn about getting a library card.

This project is supported with funds granted by the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records Agency under the Library Services and Technology Act, which is administered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.  Using this grant, the Pinal County Library District was able to license the 3M Cloud Library application that hosts the downloadable eBooks and is tied into the County’s full library catalog, which can be viewed on the county website.
