Expanded Collection


An expanded collection of over 28,000 eBooks and nearly 3,000 eAudiobooks is made possible through a resource sharing program with area libraries.
  • Available items from all participating libraries show up when you search or browse the Library’s cloudLibrary website or app.
  • Check out items as you normally do. Items check out for two weeks. There is no indication of which library owns the title.
  • Unavailable items from other libraries will not show up at all. Checked out items only show up if owned by McKinney Public Library, and these are available for holds.
  • You can only place holds on McKinney Public Library items.
  • eAudiobooks will now be available to McKinney Public Library patrons through cloudLibrary, since other participating libraries own cloudLibrary eAudiobooks. (McKinney Public Library isn’t purchasing eAudiobooks through cloudLibrary at this time, but is continuing to build its own audiobook collection through RBdigital/OneClickdigital.)
  • You may notice titles show in cloudLibrary one day but not the next. This is because content from other libraries will only show up when available.

Guidelines


  • You may check out six eBooks at a time.
  • eBooks may be checked out for 14 days.
  • Early return is available.
  • Renewal is not available, but you may check out the book again. Your reading progress should be saved by the system.
  • You may have six holds at a time. You can choose (in Settings) whether to be notified by email when a hold is ready. Your hold can be reserved for three days in the Hold Queue.
  • Each eBook in the collection has one copy available for checkout (no simultaneous use).
