Library eBook Collection Moving to cloudLibrary


San Diego Public Library is pleased to announce that the Library’s e-book collection currently hosted by OverDrive will be hosted by cloudLibrary beginning April 14, 2017. The majority of our OverDrive content will be transferred to cloudLibrary. The only titles that will not transfer are older ones that have publisher restrictions. Holds placed on OverDrive titles will not transfer, so patrons can place new holds in cloudLibrary starting April 14.


We are making this switch for two major reasons: ease of use and increased content. Many patrons reported difficulties and frustration using OverDrive. The cloudLibrary is app-based and has a simple check-out procedure. By having cloudLibrary host our collection, we will also become members of cloudLink. This program allows cloudLibrary customers the option to share their collections with each other. Patrons will have access to thousands of additional titles.


Download the cloudLibrary app: The set-up is simple: download the app, log in one time with your library card and pin number, and then you are set. If you have any questions or concerns about this switch, please contact us.

Borrow free eBooks, eAudiobooks, eVideos or search our databases for up-to-date popular and scholarly articles on a wide range of subjects. The Library's eCollection never closes and its content can be read or downloaded on your computer* or portable device.**
