Introducing the cloudLibrary Express collection! You can now “toggle” into a collection of over 1,400 high demand copies. The loan period is seven days, two items per cardholder and holds cannot be placed.

The collection offers multiple copies of “New York Times’” bestsellers and hot titles. Only immediately available titles are displayed. Because of the short loan period, titles will be available quickly. New titles are added weekly.

For the regular cloudLibrary collection, the loan period will remain twenty-one days. Seven items per cardholder can be borrowed. Holds will change from seven to five.
