Beginning November 1, Macmillan Publishers is restricting library access to new ebooks, which will impact hold times for some titles.
Thousands of ebooks and e-audiobooks for all ages are at your fingertips with CloudLibrary, featuring an ever-expanding collection of new fiction and non-fiction titles.
Search the GVPL catalogue for titles, or search within the CloudLibrary app, which you’ll need to borrow material on your mobile device or computer to read or listen to offline. Through the app, you can browse by subject and genre, borrow content, place holds and return titles, and you can set email notifications to receive an alert when a book on hold is ready for downloading.
Log in with your GVPL library card number and password.

Where other (third-party) organizations require personal information in order to provide services on behalf of the Library, the Library makes reasonable efforts to obtain commitments from such organizations that they treat the personal information in compliance with FIPPA and this policy. However, once information is in the hands of other organizations, it is beyond the Library’s control, and the Library cannot be accountable for the use, or further disclosure, of that information.
