Cloud Library (3M) Discontinued

What eBook services can I switch to?

The library offers access to OverDrive (downloadable eBooks & eAudiobooks) and Hoopla (streaming and downloable eBooks & eAudiobooks).

Overdrive

OVERDRIVE

  • Download eBooks & eAudiobooks
  • Kindle format available
  • Read in browser or via app
  • Thousands of titles

A couple of years ago, the Cloud Library app and website were much easier to use than Overdrive’s, but since then Overdrive has caught up and even surpassed Cloud Library in terms of browse-ability and ease of use.

HOOPLA

  • eBooks & eAudiobooks
  • Stream movies & TV shows
  • Limit: 8 checkouts a month
  • Always available – concurrent use means more than one person can have something checked out at the same time

We also offer Hoopla, a streaming service, which has a fantastic collection of eBooks, eAudiobooks, comics, music, and video. If your device has the storage space you can download materials to read or listen to offline.

NOTE: Unlike Overdrive, which is available to all MARINet consortium library cardholders, Hoopla is only available to patrons with a Marin County Free Library home library. Your home library depends on where you live, not where you got your card or which library you use.  (More information)
