Lending Policies

Borrowing

The loan period is 21 days. You can borrow up to 50 titles at one time. You must have a valid library card.

Returning

Books “expire” and return automatically. To return an ebook early, go to My Books and select Check In. This will delete it from your device.

Holds

You can place up to 20 titles on hold at one time. You’ll receive an email notification when a title becomes available. Once the notice is sent, you’ll have three days to borrow the title. If you don’t retrieve it in time, the title will be made available to the next person on the list. To change your email address for hold notification, go to My Books, then Account Profile. A confirmation email will be sent to your account.

Renewing

The 3M Cloud Library does not have a renewal function. If there are no holds on your ebook when you finish, you can sign it out again.
