Changes Coming to eBooks, eAudiobooks, and eMagazines

This winter, Scott County Library is transitioning to OverDrive's Libby app as your one-stop shop for eBooks, eAudiobooks, and eMagazines. There will be a period of migration as we work to move our collections to Libby. 

  • Readers may continue to enjoy eBooks and eAudiobooks in the cloudLibrary app or website through February 21st, 2021. On February 22, 2021 cloudLibrary will no longer be available.

  • If you use cloudLibrary, your checkouts, borrowing history and holds will go away with the platform. We invite you to start using Libby now, including placing holds on any titles still on hold in your cloudLibrary account.

  • On February 1st, we will reduce the number of holds customers can place in cloudLibrary from 10 to 1. If you have previously placed cloudLibrary holds, they can be fulfilled before February 21st, but you won't be able to add more. Be sure to check Libby to see if the title you want is available.
