Our cloudLibrary collection celebrated it's one-year anniversary a few months ago and we want to remind you of this service! cloudLibrary is an eBook platform the San Jose Public Library subscribes to that works in a similar fashion to our Lucky Day collections, with a few differences. The books are popular adult (and a few select Young Adult/Juvenile) titles that are available at a first come, first serve basis with no holds.

These eBooks are checked out for 7-days at a time, making them a great way to skip long hold lines if you are lucky and find them when they become available. If you are still waiting for a hold on a hit book to come in, why not see if you can get it on cloudLibrary in the meantime?

Note: If you find a book and do not see a borrowing button on the title's page after logging in, chances are that it has been checked out to someone else. You can try again at a later time to get it!
