The Library provides several ways to download ebooks to your computer and/or devices.
3M Cloud Library
The 3M Cloud Library application is an innovative way to browse, borrow and read popular fiction and nonfiction eBooks from your local public library. The 3M cloud library is available for any device that can install apps. This includes: iPhones, iPads, Android devices, Nooks, and Kindle Fires. You may also download the app to your computer. For instructions on how to get the 3M app, click here.
Using the 3M app is fairly simple for most devices. Once installed, you will need to access the Portneuf Library’s ebooks by choosing the country and state you live in and then selecting “LCEI.”
3M will then ask you to log in by using your 14 digit library barcode (no spaces) and a 4 digit password. Your default password should be the last 4 digits of your phone number. If this does not work, please contact the library and we can reset it for you.
