3M Cloud Library Is Here

The 3M Cloud Library for eBooks is now available to our patrons.  When first told of the new option for eBooks the "date available" was July 1, 2016.  But we have found out that the migration of our Overview titles to the 3M Cloud Library has gone better then expected.

Come to the Library to get the literature that will walk you through the changes.  Or give us a call. 

As of July 1, 2016 we will not be supported by Overview.  Your eBooks will automatically be deleted from your reader.

We will leave our Overdrive link on our webpage till then and we will put up a new link to 3M as soon as possible.

We are excided to offer this bigger, easier and better option to our eBook and eAudiobook readers and listeners.

Just in time for the 4th of July.

New eBook Source

We are delighted to announce the we have a new source for eBooke.  It is the 3M Cloud Library that you can access through the Polaris website and logging in with your Millstadt Library card and pin.  This is the same way you order any other format of titles you want.  This will be available starting July 1,2016.

We are going from a collection of 12,000 titles to a collection of 25,000 titles.  They will also be able to be checked out for 21 days instead of the 14 days through Overdrive.

However there is always a cloud over any change.  And the cloud here is that the only Kindle the platform will support is the Kindle Fire.  Basic Kindles do not work.  It does support any other devise, such as a smart phone, tablet, laptop. or desktop computer.

Have patience with the glitches, we are afraid there will be some, but we think you will be very happy with this new source.

Happy reading and listening.
