the Maine InfoNet Download Library has moved to a brand new e-book and e-Audiobook platform called cloudLibrary. This replaces the Overdrive platform.

The Overdrive system was turned off on February 28, 2017 and the cloudLibrary is now operating. Holds from Overdrive did not migrate to cloudLibrary, so patrons should be sure to place them again.
