Welcome to the 3M Cloud Library
The 3M Cloud Library makes borrowing eBooks fast and easy. Liverpool Public Library is the first library in New York State to offer the 3M Cloud Library to its patrons.
To get started, you will need to download the free 3M Cloud Library app for your device below. For more information, visit the 3M Cloud Library Help Page.
TIP: When prompted for your User Name, enter your 14 digit library card number.
When prompted for your Password, enter your 4 digit PIN.
Do you have a supported wireless device with the 3M Cloud app on it?
You can use the 3M Discovery Station in the library to browse Liverpool's 3M Cloud Library collections and check out or reserve items. You can also select and check out 3M Cloud titles from the Polaris Catalog. The next time you launch the 3M app on your wireless device, your selections will appear, ready to read. You don't even have to have the device with you to make your selection.
Patrons may check out up to 5 eBooks at a time from 3M Cloud. eBooks are checked out for a 21 day loan period, but may be returned early at any time. A patron may have up to 5 3M Cloud eBooks on hold at one time. When a hold list item becomes available, it remains reserved for a 3 day period, awaiting checkout by the person who placed the hold.
Checking Out OverDrive E-Books
The OverDrive Digital collection includes currently popular e-books in epub, Kindle, and pdf formats, and audiobooks. You can download the e-books and check them out on your library card just like a regular book. The books can be read on many mobile devices, such as the iPhone, iPad, and Android. They can be transferred to many ereader devices, such as the Kindle, iPad, the Barnes & Noble NOOK, and the Kobo eReader to name a few.
OverDrive's app for mobile devices (including iPhone® / iPad® / iPod touch®, Kindle Fire, Android ™, & Windows Phone 7/8) supports eBooks and Audiobooks.
Kindle Users: Checkout from OverDrive
With your library card and PIN, browse the OverDrive Digital Collection and check out items for 1, 2 or 3 week loan periods. Use your Amazon.com account to redeem your checkouts for free from the Amazon website.
A Wi-Fi connection (not 3G) is required for wireless delivery from Amazon to your reading device.
You will need a USB connector and computer if your Kindle is not Wi-Fi capable.
Due to publisher restrictions, some titles may not be wirelessly delivered to your device and instead require USB transfer from your computer to your device. These restricted titles also may not be accessed on Kindle reading applications.
NOOK owners! It's easy to read eBooks from the Library!
Good news! If you have a NOOK Color, NOOK Tablet, NOOK HD, or NOOK HD+, you can now visit the Barnes & Noble website and install the 3M Cloud app and the OverDrive Media Console app on your NOOK. You no longer need to connect your NOOK to a computer to download library eBooks. Select and check out your 3M Cloud or OverDriveeBooks from anywhere, even in the library!
