eBooks -- Anytime, Anywhere

The Scarborough Library offers eBooks and eAudiobooks through three services: the cloudLibrary, the Maine Infonet Download Library and ProQuest ebrary.

The Library selects and owns the titles in the cloudLibrary and the collection of over 1400 books and audiobooks is accessible only with a Scarborough Public Library card.

The Library is also a member of the Maine Infonet Download Library a shared service of some 200 Maine libraries that offers both eBooks and eAudiobooks. Maine Infonet selects the titles and sets the loan rules. The Maine Infonet Download Library will migrate from the Overdrive platform to the cloudLibrary platform on March 1, 2017. Please note that dedicated Kindle eReaders (Paperwhite type) are not compatible with cloudLibrary. Click here for more information about the switch.

Our new ProQuest ebrary service is focused on technology-related titles (software, programming, web development, game design, etc.) and caters to Scarborough's significant "techie" community.  Many of these titles are only available online and are not downloadable to an eReading device.

To use any of these eBook and eAudiobook services you need an active Scarborough Library card in good standing (not expired, fines less than $5.00, and no outstanding bills for missing material).
