KFPL is switching our e-book and e-audiobook content from OverDrive (and Libby) to cloudLibrary effective May 27, 2020. Learn more about cloudLibrary on our FAQ page.
The biggest factor in our decision to switch to cloudLibrary is the ability to join the cloudLink consortium: a way for public libraries to pool together and share their digital collections.
At this point, the Ontario cloudLink group already consists of more than 28 other public libraries, with a shared collection of over 100,000 titles (our current digital collection has about 13,000 titles).
We recognize that this will be a big transition, but we believe the opportunity to connect and work with other public libraries to create a larger, more diverse collection will provide a significant benefit for all our patrons.
Once we have launched, you will need to download a new app on your computer or mobile device (you will be able to sign in right away with your library card number and PIN). Once signed in, you can re-place your reservations and re-submit your suggestions in the app.
If you have any questions or comments about the transition, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
