Q. How can I check out and read a book on my computer?
If you're interested in using eBooks borrowed from the library, a good place to start is with our Downloads page. From there, you can explore the various platforms we offer, to find what's best for you. Each tab provides an overview of our various providers, and how to use them all. If you prefer hands-on help with our staff, visit our schedule of Gizmo Garage programs.
You can search our Overdrive, 3M Cloud Library, and Ebrary collections directly from the links in the green navigation bar; you can also search our regular catalog and limit your results to eBooks. 3M Cloud Library eBooks require the 3M Cloud Library software, and Overdrive and Ebrary eBooks can be read in your web browser or in downloaded Adobe Digital Editions software. Find all of the instructions for these as well as download links for the free software on the help tabs on the Downloads page.
