All Aboard the Digital Express -- New Digital Express eAudio from cloudLibrary

Cloud Library Logo
04/02/2021

New at OPL -- Digital Express eAudio from cloudLibrary! If you are already using cloudLibrary for Express eBooks then everything is the same, just access like you normally do and you can borrow the most popular and newest titles to listen to. The parameters are the same as they are for Express eBooks – two titles out at a time total (regardless of format), a one-week loan period and no holds. The new eAudio is on the same “digital shelf” as the eBooks so you don’t need a new cloudLibrary card or to switch accounts to access like you do to listen to French Audiobooks.

If you have not used cloudLibrary before, now is a good time to start – all sorts of new content. Start by downloading the app on your device then follow the prompts to eventually choose “Ottawa Public Library Express Collection” as your library. Next, login with your library card number and PIN and enjoy some of the newest and most popular eAudio titles around. On your computer, access cloudLibrary through the OPL website, login and start to listen!  You can filter to “Available Now” on your device or on your computer to see what you can borrow instantly.

No more waiting -- even for the most popular titles!
