Using the Desktop App

Our Fast Read Ebooks collection is a cloudLibrary product. There are several ways to find the cloudLibrary desktop app. You can follow this link. Alternatively, if you are looking at the cloudLibrary on a browser, there is a "Download app" link in the top right hand corner. Scroll down the page this link opens until you come to "get started | choose your app". Click on the appropriate operating system for instructions, requirements, a list of supported eReaders and the app software.

Once you've installed the cloudLibrary software on your computer, you can sign into your account. It will walk you through the process of choosing your country, province, library, and library account. cloudLibrary uses Adobe Digital Editions to allow you borrow copyrighted ebooks. If you already have an Adobe ID, it is best if you use it. If you do not have an Adobe ID you can create one or have cloudLibrary automatically create one for you.

You can use the cloudLibrary app directly to browse the collection, check out and read titles. Titles can be downloaded within the app for offline reading. You can also return titles. From "My Books", click on "List View". The subsequent list will give you the option to return. You can also use the app to transfer titles to ereaders. To find out more about this, choose the "Transferring Titles to an eReader" option on the sidebar.
