Cloud Library

Welcome to Cloud Library, formerly 3M Cloud Library, an ebook collection from the White Plains Public Library. Cloud Library has been popular with library users across the country because it is so easy to use: just download the app, then start browsing and borrowing popular titles.

Cloud Library works with all devices except for the Kindle–but Kindle users, don’t despair!–we are still acquiring ebooks through our original ebook provider, Overdrive

Cloud Library is available to White Plains Public Library cardholders as well as cardholders from the Chappaqua, Greenburgh, Larchmont, Mount Pleasant, New Rochelle, North Castle, and Scarsdale libraries.

Five items can be borrowed at one time, the loan period is 14 days, and five titles can be placed on hold at one time. When items placed on hold become available, they are held for 72 hours before returning to the queue. Want to be notified by email when books become available? Go to settings and activate email alerts.

Below you’ll find plenty of information to help you get started, or just come into the Library and we’ll help you out. Comments, questions, or problems? Use the form at the bottom of the page.
