My cup overrunneth on library ebooks. Two of my libraries now offer the 3M library cloud. I downloaded a book from one of them. Super speedy! Here's my two questions: can you use multiple libraries like you do on Overdrive? Do I just log out of the first and in on the second? And, is there an easier search feature to see what came in new? Right now, Brooklyn has 113 ficiton books and you have to load them all in and then do a sort under newest. When they get up to higher numbers, that could take a while.

My library uses 3M Cloud too.  I can search by shelves or categories.  When I get into categories, it breaks it down further.  Like if I choose the romance category, I can then search by genre.  Not that there's that many books right now to search.  At a glance, I don't see if you can have multiple user accounts.  Once I enter my info, it's saved automatically and I don't see a switch button anywhere.

Nancy- it really depends on what services the library bought when contracting with 3M.  You'd need to contact your library to ask about the new books etc.  You can be sure the better features cost more then basic ones..

I think you can log out and log in with the other libraries details.
