Do you enjoy eBooks? Getting a new eReader for Christmas? Now, in addition to the eBooks we’ve already had available through the Lewis & Clark Digital Consortium, we’ll provide access to even more eBooks in our regular catalog. These new 3M Cloud eBooks will be available to check out or request directly from the library’s catalog, where you already go to find books, magazines, music and movies. All you need is your library card number and your pin. We have brochures available on both methods of checking out free eBooks through the library. And we can also provide personal assistance to help you get started. Just stop in or call us at 523-4820 with questions.
