With the addition of the cloudLibrary database, the New Braunfels Public Library has added more than 100,000 titles to its digital eBooks and eAudiobooks selection. Library cardholders may access the database on desktop computers, many e-reading devices and iOS and Android phones and tablets.

“CloudLibrary is similar to Overdrive in that it offers e-books and e-audiobooks, but cloudLibrary has many more options and newer titles-including best-sellers, Bluebonnet books and popular young adult titles—and is compatible with more mobile devices,” digital services librarian Miranda Robbins said in a news release. “It’s also pretty intuitive and user-friendly.”

According to the news release, cloudLibrary users can customize their digital browsing experience using filters to sort titles by publication date, author, title, recent additions, or rating. CloudLibrary also offers one-click borrowing, meaning downloading a title is a single-step process. Users can borrow up to 10 items at a time, and cloudLibrary keeps all your content in sync across devices.

All that’s needed to access cloudLibrary is a New Braunfels Public Library card. For more information, call the library at 830-221-4300, or stop by at 700 E. Common St., New Braunfels, to speak with library staff.

Those seeking assistance setting up or using cloudLibrary may also come to the library’s Open Tech sessions, held weekly from 1-2 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays.
