Dear eBook Reader,

We’re delighted that you are using the Crab Orchard Public Library as your source for eBooks. We are happy to announce that we have chosen the Cloud Library as our exclusive platform for eBooks and downloadable audiobooks!

If you are already using the Cloud Library, you know that it is very easy to use. For those of you who are new to the Cloud Library, please visit to get set up or grab our general how-to brochure. We think you will love it.

If you have been using Southern Illinois Libraries on the Go (Overdrive) through the Crab Orchard Public Library, please be aware that this service will be discontinued on April 1, 2016. We sincerely regret any inconvenience this may cause. Please be advised that the Kindle Fire works with the Cloud Library, but basic Kindles do not. You may have another device, such as a smart phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer that you can use to access the Cloud Library.

It’s very easy to sign up for and use the Cloud Library, but if you find that you need a little help, simply stop in or contact us for one-on-one assistance.
