You can also select and check out cloudLibrary titles from the Polaris Catalog. The next time you launch the cloudLibrary app on your wireless device, your selections will appear, ready to read.

Patrons may check out up to 6 eBooks or Audiobooks at a time from cloudLibrary. Titles are checked out for a 21 day loan period, but may be returned early at any time. A patron may have up to 10 cloudLibrary titles 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.
