3M Cloud Library
WTPL has launched its own 3M Cloud Library of ebooks and downloadable audiobooks. Our Cloud Library is linked to the MAIN Cloud Library, so patrons will continue to have access to the MAIN content in addition to the Washington Township Library content. As other MAIN libraries launch their own Private Clouds, you will be able to access their content as well, provided their patrons don’t have holds on the material. ...
In order to take advantage of this new content, you need to log out of the MAIN 3M Cloud on your device (usually found under settings) and then log back in, choosing the Washington Township Library as your library (instead of MAIN).
At this time your holds and reading history from your MAIN account will not be visible when logging in through Washington Township Library. 3M is currently investigating if it will be possible to move history and holds to the new private cloud. You will have to log in through your MAIN account to see that information and finish up the titles you are currently reading or listening to. Please place future holds through the Washington Township private cloud! Be sure to contact the Library if you have any questions.
