The Carnegie Public Library provides two different platforms for e-materials, Overdrive and Cloud Library. Click on the links to access these libraries from your computer. If you're reading/listening/watching on a mobile device, it's recommended that you first download the apps.

Remember! We offer 1-1 assistance for all your computer or device questions. Contact us to set up an individualized appointment.


Will my library account accrue fines if the e-item is late?

No! The book will expire when the loan period is up without penalty. However, it is courteous to return a book early so that someone else can have access. The process for this varies from device to device, but typically, if you touch and hold the item in your bookshelf (in the Overdrive app or otherwise) a delete and return button will appear.

Why can’t I find what I am looking for?

Some publishers have not entered the “e-space.” If you are looking for something by one of these publishers it might be unavailable. Additionally, while the library tries to provide as wide an array of books as possible, some book purchases can be expensive, and are limited by budget.

Do I have to be connected to the internet to access my materials?

No! However you do have to be connected to the internet to download them. Once they have been added to your device, they are there, with or without internet. Feel free to take your e-books on your road trip!


A new Library Service, designed just for you!

If you aren’t able to come to the library, we will bring the library to you! We can mail books, DVDs, CDs and other library materials to your mailbox if you find it physically challenging to come to the library.

There is no charge for this service: the library pays for all postage.

Don’t worry: we no longer charge overdue fines. You can find out more about Homebound by emailing Shawna Nall at
