Public Libraries Launches Three New Online Services

Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL) has kicked off the New Year by launching three new online services -- Zinio for Libraries, 3M Cloud Library e-book lending system and Learn4Life – that will appeal to a wide variety of customers.

Zinio digitally recreates, page-by-page, full-color magazines with interactive elements such as audio and video; intuitive navigation; and keyword article search. Registered customers may view 100 magazine titles and checkout as many as they want.

The 3M Cloud Library e-book lending system currently offers titles from all of the “big six” publishers. Customers can check-out and read books and browse the digital bookshelf from any location.

The Learn4Life program makes it easy to take high-quality, free courses and career training programs entirely over the Internet.

Get more details about the services.
