3M Cloud and Overdrive Changes

Public Library Merges eBook Collection

The Olney Public Library is happy to announce that we have chosen the 3M Cloud Library as our exclusive platform for eBooks and downloadable audiobooks! If you are already using the 3M Cloud Library, you know that it is very easy to use. For those of you who are new to the 3M Cloud Library, please visit ebook.3m.com to get set up or grab our general how-to brochure. We think you will love it.

If you have been using Southern Illinois Libraries on the Go (Overdrive) through the Olney Public Library, please be aware that this service will be discontinued on April 1, 2016. We sincerely regret any inconvenience this may cause. Please be advised that the Kindle Fire works with the 3M Cloud Library, but basic Kindles do not. You may have another device, such as a smart phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer that you can use to access the Cloud Library.

It’s very easy to sign up for and use the 3M Cloud Library, but if you find that you need a little help, simply stop in or contact us for one-on-one assistance.

Olney Public Library

You can look forward to an expanded selection of eBooks and downloadable audiobooks all in one easy-to-use place!
