The app is available in the Apple App Store and on Google Play. Alternatively, you can install the Windows, Chromebook or Apple desktop applications.  Please visit http://yourcloudlibrary.com/index.php/en-us/ for links to get the free app and download instructions.

Step 2 : Login
Select the Country, State and MidPointe Library System as your library, then enter your library card number and library card PIN. Accept the terms of use and log in.  

Step 3 : Browse, borrow and start reading!  
cloudLibrary makes it simple to download titles, save reads for later, and even sync activity across multiple devices. Patrons can check out up to 10 items at a time and keep them for up to 21 days.  The cloudLibrary app is compatible with the following devices: iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Android Phones, Android Tablets, NOOK Tablets, NOOK eReaders, Kobo eReaders and Kindle Fire.
