Welcome to the Twin Cities Metro eLibrary on Libby!

MELSA Twin Cities Metro eLibrary logoScott County Library has united with other area libraries on OverDrive's Libby app to bring you the Twin Cities Metro eLibrary. The eLibrary combines eBooks, eAudiobooks, and eMagazines from 8 library systems so readers across the region can access more items than ever before, with shorter wait times. Scott County readers can access the entire collection on Libby with their SCL library card and PIN, no new account required.

CloudLibrary access ended on 2/22/2021. Checkouts, borrowing history, and holds did not migrate to Libby. For more information about this change, read our Frequently Asked Questions.
