Free library e-books, e-audiobooks, digital video and magazines for a wide array of electronic devices.

Please note: Due to high cost and poor levels of use, the Sausalito Library and the other libraries that make up the MARINet consortium have decided to phase out the Cloud Library e-book service (formerly known as 3M) and focus on the OverDrive e-book and e-audiobook collections. If you are a Cloud Library user, you will still be able to check out titles until June 1, 2017, through the Cloud Library app or via direct link to their website. If you have titles on hold that you don't think you will get to read in time, please send an email message to get your hold moved over to a copy from the OverDrive service, if one is available.
