Getting Started With:

  1. Install the CloudLibrary app from the app store on your Android or iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch) device.
  2. In CloudLibrary, follow the prompts to find the library and sign in with a valid Cook Memorial Public Library District card.
  3. Tap on the Search icon to search or browse the collection.
  4. Borrowed items appear under My Books and download to the app automatically when you’re on Wi-Fi, so you can read them when you’re offline.

Tips:

  • The CloudLibrary app also stores your library barcode to use with our self-check scanners in the library. You can store multiple library cards in the CloudLibrary app.
  • Turn on Kids Mode by visiting settings and toggling on the Kids Mode switch towards the bottom of the list. Kids Mode can be turned off by following the same steps.

FYI:

  • You can have 5 titles checked out and 10 titles on hold at a time in CloudLibrary.
  • Titles check out for 3 weeks and automatically return themselves, though you can choose to return an item early.
  • You can renew a title as long as there is not a hold. You will get the option to renew in the app a few days before the title is due.
