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 let us know.
