Borrowing books digitally from your public library isn’t necessarily new, as we previously noted how the Toronto Public Library was using Adobe’s OverDrive software, just one of many locations using the system.
An alternative is coming, as 3M’s Cloud Library is starting to be piloted by 10 Canadian locations part of the company’s advisory council, along with five other early adopter locations.
The following list are 10 libraries part of the company’s advisory board set to implement Cloud Library, supplied to iPhoneinCanada.ca by Jeanne Parsons, the Marketing Communications supervisor for 3M Library Systems and 3M Cloud Library:
Greater Victoria Public (live)
Norther Vancouver City
Here are five locations that are early adopters of 3M Cloud Library:
Norfolk County Public
King Township Public
“Users will truly enjoy how simple and convenient it is to borrow books from the library through services like this,” said Anne Parker, GVPL’s digital collections co-ordinator.
