Looking for CloudLibrary, 3M, or Biblotheca? This digital service provider (with three names!) is no longer offered by Darien Library. You can still access great e-Books and e-Audiobooks by using OverDrive or Hoopla Digital. Just search your app store for either Libby by OverDrive or Hoopla Digital. Then log in with your Darien Library barcode number located on the back of your library card.

OverDrive also offers access to Kindle books while Hoopla has movies, music, and comic books in addition to e-Books and e-Audiobooks.
