Access Now

To expand Virtual Library access during the COVID-19 crisis, cloudLibrary checkout periods have been temporarily increased to 10 days.

cloudLibrary provides popular eBooks and audiobooks in a Lucky Day collection.

  • Borrow 1 item at a time
  • Check out for 7 days
  • Login with your Austin Public Library card number and password
  • "Save for Later" if the title isn't available
