What is Cloud Library?

Cloud Library allows The Assumption Parish Library’s patrons to check out eBooks and eAudiobooks from the comfort of their own homes! Log in with your card number and pin number (the last four digits of your card number), and get started today.

The Cloud Library enables members of APL to browse, borrow, and read our digital collection. Books can be read—or listened to—on personal devices, such as iPads, iPhones, Android devices, Nook, Kindle Fire, PC, and Mac OS.

Please call our the Assumption Parish Library at 985-369-7070 if you encounter any issues. Our library workers will be happy to help. 

What kind of e-reader can I use with Cloud Library e-books?

Apple devices (iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch), Android-based tablets and smartphones, Nooks, Sony eReaders, Amazon Kindle Fire, PCs, Mac OS, and more not specifically listed.

Can I read Cloud Library e-books on my Amazon Kindle?

Cloud Library only works with the Kindle Fire. Amazon requires that e-book platforms have a contract with them to offer standard Kindle compatibility. Instructions for downloading the Kindle Fire app are available here

I use Overdrive to read e-books and download audiobooks from another library. Can I access your Cloud Library books using Overdrive?

No. Overdrive and Cloud Library are entirely separate platforms, and you can only access Assumption Parish library e-books and audiobook downloads from the Cloud Library app on your device.

A digital streaming service for Movies, Comics, Books, and more!

The Assumption Parish Library is happy to introduce Hoopla as a new digital streaming service for our patrons! You can stream music, movies, comics, books, and audiobooks to your smart phone or smart TV. To get started, just download the Hoopla App from Google Play, the App Store, or wherever you download apps for your device. There is a Kid-Friendly mode available for those with children who want to restrict access to mature materials.
