WCCLS Celebrates Launch of Expanded E-book Options!

Join your friends and neighbors at the Hillsboro and Tualatin libraries on Tuesday, September 23rd to celebrate the launch of the Washington County Cooperative Library Services’ (WCCLS) new 3M Cloud Library service!

WCCLS is pleased to present this easy to use e-book service that will work on your Apple or Android device, Kindle Fire, PC or Mac. The 3M Cloud Library app is a snap to get set up on your device and links up to your WCCLS online account.

Attend one of the two launch parties to get a personal demonstration of the new service, enjoy refreshments, and enter to win a free Samsung Galaxy tablet (courtesy of sponsor 3M Cloud Library).

Hillsboro Main Library Launch Party:   11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. (2850 NE Brookwood Pwy). Enjoy special remarks from Hillsboro Mayor Jerry Willey, Interim Library Director Linda Lybecker and WCCLS Director Eva Calcagno.

Tualatin Public Library Launch Party:   4:30 – 6:30 p.m. (18878 SW Martinazzi Ave). Featured speakers include Tualatin City Manager Sherilyn Lombos, Library Manager Jerianne Thompson and WCCLS Director Eva Calcagno.

Doug Monson, a representative from 3M Cloud Library, will be on hand to demonstrate the e-book service at both events and answer questions.

With the launch of 3M Cloud Library, WCCLS is adding e-book titles for readers of all ages – kids, teens and adults. Enjoy finding the latest bestseller or read one of those titles that never seem to go out of circulation. WCCLS will be adding more e-books to 3M Cloud Library over time, and working to keep hold queues short. We also will continue to offer the Library2Go service that you may already use and enjoy. WCCLS is adding this second e-book service to respond to your feedback and keep up with the ever-growing demand for e-books.

We look forward to seeing you at one of the launch parties on the 23rd!
