We are reorganizing our digital library to expand our collections!

On June 14, WCCLS will move out of the Oregon Digital Library Consortium (Library2Go) into our own OverDrive collection so we can better serve digital readers in Washington County. We are also moving the e-books and all audiobooks currently in Cloud Library over to our OverDrive platform, where we will continue to grow our digital library going forward.

If you use OverDrive now, starting June 14 you will need to update your bookmarks, and/or re-login to OverDrive or Libby apps, choosing WCCLS as your library rather than Library2Go. The tried and true OverDrive app has features you’ve come to expect, the new Libby app from OverDrive offers a new, easy-to-use interface. Both the Libby and OverDrive apps will provide access to the same great WCCLS digital collections.

Additionally, we will retire our Cloud Library platform on June 15. If you have holds on titles in Cloud Library that you don’t think you will read by June 13, please log into your OverDrive account and place new holds on those same titles using OverDrive. If you haven’t used OverDrive before, here is how to get started.

With these changes, you will see wait times for popular titles go down, limits for your holds and checkouts will go up, and we look forward to being able to offer expanded collection options for patrons of all ages.  If you have questions or need assistance, please send us a message or learn more here.
