The bookdrop at Burnett Library is currently out of order—swing by Dana, Harte, Twain, or any of our other locations to return library materials after hours. 


Face coverings must be worn by all patrons, except children under the age of 2, when in library buildings. This requirement is in accordance with the most recent Health Order from the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services.




 

IMPROVING YOUR DIGITAL BOOK EXPERIENCE: MOVING FROM CLOUD LIBRARY TO OVERDRIVE

EbooksSlider-01

After receiving feedback from our patrons, LBPL studied both Cloud Library and OverDrive as resources for eBooks and eAudiobooks. We concluded that OverDrive is simply a better experience for our patrons, so we will be transferring the eBooks and eAudiobooks from Cloud Library to OverDrive.

OverDrive has a very reliable app (Libby) that is easy to use, and having eBooks and eAudiobooks in one place for all audiences makes it easier to find what you want.

As of today, no new holds can be placed in Cloud Library. Begin browsing our existing collections in OverDrive or Libby!

If you had something checked out at the time of the transfer, that check out will stay with you until the due date from the Cloud Library check out. Holds and wish lists will not transfer over, but some of the same titles are already on OverDrive and can be placed on hold or added to your wish list here. Others can be put on hold or your wish lists once the transfer is complete.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.

Do you have a recommendation that will help us improve our Digital Library? We'd love to hear from you!
