Follow these instructions to get started with cloudLibrary on your Apple or Android device:

STEP ONE: Open the Apple App Store (on Apple devices) or the Google Play Store (on Android devices) and search for cloudLibrary. Tap GET or INSTALL, wait for the download to complete, and then open the app from your home screen.

If you’re interested in a book but don’t want to borrow it now, you can tap the blue flag icon to mark it for later. Select My Books in the menu to access your current items. From My Books, you can also view your borrowing history, holds, and “books of interest” list (titles you’ve flagged) and return titles early. Titles are checked out to you for three weeks and will be returned automatically. You may borrow three items at once.
