eBooks Abound at the Library

Patrons Have Access to Thousands at MAIN Public Libraries

Morristown, NJ – Exercise your mind this summer with thousands of eBooks and eAudiobooks by cloudLibrary Bibliotheca, brought to you by your local public library. cloudLibrary by Bibliotheca is designed to specifically meet the evolving needs for communities like those in northern New Jersey. Energize your summer activities at the shore, on the porch and on the go with top new releases, best sellers, and many more that are sure to surprise users with both the collections’ variety and ease of use to seamlessly access materials.

Will  Porter,  MAIN  Digital  Services  Committee  Chair  and  Director  of  the  Roxbury  Township  Public  Library,  is  delighted to be offering eBooks through cloudLibrary because of the “convenience factor.” Mr. Porter continued, “Libraries providing eBooks has reached a whole new level. Whether you’re stuck in a waiting room, in line at the store, or taking in some sun, you’re never without a book as long as you have the app on your device.”

Library users can download the app free of charge anywhere at any time in their preferred app store. Once the app is installed to a device such as a cell phone, there is a simple, one‐time sign in process which includes selecting the user’s local library followed by entering the library card barcode number. Users can be browsing for books in less than a minute. Content is stored on the device itself, meaning no data charges are incurred while reading or listening after the download is complete. Users needing assistance should contact their local library or visit: http://www.yourcloudlibrary.com/index.php/en‐us/.

“We are thrilled to be offering this service to the public. We believe that our patrons will have the best experience possible with the cloudLibrary app,” said Phillip Berg, MAIN Executive Director. “This platform allows us to offer more for our patrons – more content from which to choose, fully downloadable books, virtual library cards, and thousands of audiobooks waiting to be heard.”

MAIN was originally created in 1980 when a number of Morris County’s libraries were automated with a shared computer system. Over time, it has evolved into a full‐fledged public library consortium in and around the County which offers its members cost‐sharing opportunities, technical support, and an organizational structure conducive to collaboration and efficient management of tax dollars.
