Smashwords to Supply Nearly 300,000 Titles to Bibliotheca cloudLibrary - Smashwords

Panzer was shaken from his afternoon nap by cheering and clapping. Jumping into the Panzermobile our sleepy kitty followed all the noise to the Smashwords site. There he found an announcement about Bibliotheca.

Libraries are good for readers.
According to the post by Mark Coker, Smashwords announced an agreement with Bibliotheca to distribute ebooks to the 3,000 libraries in the U.S., Canada, U.K., and Australia that use Bibliotheca's cloudLibrary service. Mr. Coker points out that because of the large volume of Smashwords ebooks to be uploaded to the cloudLibrary system, it will be several weeks before all ebooks will be available. To use the service a patron to log into the library through the service and "checks out" their ebook. The ebook then resides on the patron's computer, tablet or device for a specified amount of time and is then "checked back into the library."

Panzer says, "There are several links in the post, including one to download the app."

Note: This is a shortish-long post. Bring a cup of tea and a muffin to read the original post and, if you plan to follow the links, bring an extra cup of tea for today's reading selection.
