eBooks available from LibraryOnTheGo and the 3M Cloud Library

 

 

 

Electronic books, or 'eBooks', are digital copies of books, audio books, CDs, and DVDs that can be 'checked out' and downloaded to your portable electronic device or personal computer.

 

The LibraryOnTheGo service is a collection of titles that have been made available for checkout by the Library. Items may be checked out online and then downloaded to your personal digital device, phone, or computer. eBooks can be returned early.

 

Three titles may be checked out at a time. Once an eBook has been checked out and downloaded, the eBook is available for use for one or two weeks, depending on the item. After the checkout period has expired, the item is automatically removed from the portable device.

  

To check out titles, you must have:

  • A valid West Sangamon Public Library card
  • Internet access
  • Your own E-Mail address
  • A computer or portable digital device
  • Cable that came with the device
  • Viewing software, which is available for free

 

Find more information on accessing Library-On-The-Go here.   Videos showing how to setup your computer or mobile device can be found here.

 

Library-On-The-Go uses the OverDrive Media Console to view eBooks and play audiobooks.  Download the Console from this link.

 

Barnes and Noble have online Nook Video Tutorials that will help with setting up and registering the Nook. They also offer several eBooks on how to check out library books using the Nook.

 

Amazon has some help for Kindle users on how to borrow library books. You will need to have your Amazon.com account setup and Kindle registered with that account.

To search and checkout eBooks, go to the LibraryOnTheGo site.
