cloudLibrary iconOn March 1, 2017, the Bailey Library subscription with the Maine InfoNet Download Library moved to a new eBook and Audiobook platform called cloudLibrary. This has replaced the Overdrive platform. For more information, please visit the Maine InfoNet Download Library website.

Download eBooks and Audiobooks for free to your phone or tablet from cloudLibrary.

Follow these instructions to get started on your Apple or Android device or click here to jump to Kindle Fire instructions:

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.
STEP TWO: Once the app is open, connect to Bailey by selecting United States, Maine, and Winthrop. Enter your library card number (with no space) and log in.
STEP THREE: Select the magnifying glass to search for a specific title or author, or the menu icon in the top left corner to see featured collections or browse by genre. Titles with a blue headphones icon are Audiobooks, and titles without this icon are eBooks. You can swipe from the right to limit results to just Audiobooks, eBooks, and/or books that are currently available. Tap a book cover to read more about a book and listen to or read a sample.
STEP FOUR: Tap a book cover and then select Borrow to borrow it now, or Hold to be added to the wait list. 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.
