Looking for eBooks & eAudiobooks? You can now find them in the cloudLibrary App! As we announced a little while back, we have begun a partnership with cloudLibrary as our content provider for both eBooks and eAudiobooks. While we were transferring titles from Overdrive/Libby and Axis 360 to cloudLibrary we offered limited access to those two Apps; now that the content has migrated, we have ended access to those two platforms. You can no longer log into Overdrive/Libby and/or Axis 360 to borrow and read content with your Windsor Public Library Card.
Why the move? This has been a very popular question. Here are some of the advantages gained in moving to cloudLibrary:
- Convenience: You can now search for books in one App instead of two.
- More books: Through cloudLinking with other libraries in Ontario, you’ll have access to a greater number of titles – both eBooks & eAudio.
- Library announcements: Some of you we surprised (and a little panicked) when you discovered you couldn’t log into Libby (and the other Apps) anymore. With cloudLibrary there is a Library Messages feature built right into the App – helping us to ensure that important announcements make their way to you.
If you have additional questions about cloudLibrary, our cloudLibrary FAQ page has some great information to help you get started. Our staff are always ready to help as well!
