Through Maine InfoNet, your Albert F. Totman Library membership gives you access to thousands of eBooks and eAudiobooks in the cloudLibrary collection.
To begin, you’ll need the cloudLibrary App for your PC, eReader, tablet or phone. You can download the app for all the supported platforms at the cloudLibrary website or other sources, such as the Apple App Store or Google Play.
After you install the app and open it, you will be asked to identify your country, state and Library. Choose “Phippsburg Albert F. Totman Library” on the dropdown list of participating Maine libraries and type in your account number. That will open the cloudLibrary for browsing and borrowing.
You can borrow up to three eBooks or eAudiobooks for three weeks from the cloudLibrary. A borrowed item will automatically be returned at the end of the lending period, or you can return it early. If the returned item is not on hold, you can check it out again if you want. And your downloaded item will be synched across multiple devices that you’ve installed cloudLibrary App on.
As an eBook and eAudiobook enthusiast, you may want to check out some of the other sources that abound on the Internet. They do not require cloudLibrary account, they are FREE, and you get to keep the items you download!
