Cinnamon BunWhy Downloadable Content from Your BCCLS Library is More Tempting than a Cinnabon

Here's something you may find irresistible: You can instantly stream or download movies, music, eBooks, magazines and audiobooks 24/7 – completely free of charge.Why rack up charges on your credit or debit card for expensive premium services when you can access in-demand digital content anytime, anywhere with your public library card?

______________Library is a member of the Bergen County Cooperative Library System (BCCLS), a consortium of 76 public libraries working together to better serve their individual communities.eBCCLS, the collective's extensive electronic collection, is delivered to patrons through the Hoopla, RBDigital, and Cloud Library apps at eBCCLS.org.

Hoopla allows you to borrow movies, music, audiobooks, eBooks, comics and television shows to enjoy on your computer, tablet, phone or television. With no waiting, titles can be streamed immediately, or downloaded to phones or tablets for enjoyment later offline. There are hundreds of thousands of titles to choose from, with more being added daily. Titles are automatically returned and removed from your device at the end of the lending period.

The cloudLibrary collection focuses exclusively on ebooks and audiobooks and generally includes more current materials than Hoopla, but be sure to check both if you are looking for something in particular. You might be able to get it faster through the other service. If it's a current bestseller, cloudLibrary is usually the first place to find it. The app runs on laptop and desktop computers (Windows and Mac), iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, and newer iPod Touch devices), Android Devices (phones and tablets), and Kindle Fire. The ebooks available through cloudLibrary are also compatible with Nook and Kobo readers. 

RBdigital offers full-color, interactive digital magazines at a moment's notice. The service delivers over 200 popular titles - from Us Weekly to O, the Oprah Magazine – with new issues instantly accessible and released simultaneously with the print edition. The service allows you to check out as many issues as you want and to keep them indefinitely. There's never an overdue fine. You can browse the magazine collection by title, by language, or by category, so your favorite magazines and new discoveries are easy to find.Convenient, free apps are available to download magazines to the iPad, iPhone/iPod Touch, Android and Kindle Fire/HD/HDX. It's a newsstand on your desktop or in your pocket.
