eBook Readers:

If you have been using Southern Illinois Libraries on the Go (Overdrive) through the Lawrence Public Library, please be aware that this service was discontinued on April 1, 2016. The eBook collection was transferred to 3M Cloud Library. It is now our exclusive platform for eBooks and downloadable audio books. For those of you who are new to the Cloud Library, please visit ebook.3m.com or see below for instructions. With a little practice it is just as easy to use as Overdrive. Kindle Fire works with the Cloud Library, but basic KIndles do not. You may have another device, such as a smart phone, table, laptop, or desktop computer that you can use to access the Cloud Library. Contact the library if you need assistance at 943-3016 or lawrencepubliclibrary@yahoo.com.
