New eBook & eAudioBook App Available

The Hillsboro City Library is always on the lookout for new and exciting opportunities to provide quality services to our patrons. After exploring various options, the Hillsboro City Library feels it has found a better e-book service, with more content, through cloudLibrary. As such, Overdrive will be going away on September 30.

In an effort to give you plenty of time to adjust to this transition, our new digital content service, cloudLibrary, goes live on September 2nd. Once you sign into cloudLibrary you will have access to more than 220,000 e-books and audiobooks from libraries across the state, including ours. This means, more titles to choose from and shorter wait times on the materials you are interested in reading.

As a part of this transition, you will also gain access cloudLibrary’s NewStand, which provides access to 7,000 magazines and newspapers from around the globe. Currently a standalone app, NewStand will integrate into the main cloudLibrary app later this year.

cloudLibrary and NewsStand are a free service, available to all library patrons – all you need is your library card number. The apps are available in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. As a Hillsboro City Library Patron, you can simply download the app, log in using your library card number and pin to start interacting with the digital library while you are on the go.

For more information on how to transition into accessing the new cloudLibrary and Newstand materials, check out these FAQs, and these step-by-step video guides. As always, Hillsboro Library staff are available at the circulation desk for in person assistance with setting up your device(s) or over the phone at (254) 582-7385.
