If you are already using cloudLibrary, you know that it is very easy to use. For those of you who are new to cloudLibrary, please click here to get started today. We know you will love it.

If you have been using Overdrive through Nassau County Public Library, please be aware that our Overdrive service will be discontinued as of February 16, 2017. We sincerely regret any inconvenience.

It’s very easy to sign up for and use cloudLibrary. All you need is your library card number and pin. If you find you need a little help, please visit any of the Nassau County Public Library facilities any Friday in January. Staff members are ready to assist you.

You can look forward to an expanded selection of eBooks and eAudiobooks, all in one place. We are featuring Best Reads of 2016. However, just scroll down the page for shelves of bestsellers, staff picks and wonderful new titles…and enjoy!

Please do not place any holds or requests for purchases in the Overdrive system. Please see a staff member for assistance with this.
