The Windham Public Library offers access to downloads through four services: our 3M Cloud Library, our subscriptions to digital magazines through Zionio (coming 9/1/15), the Maine Infonet Download Library, and the use of our library’s eReaders. Using one of our download libraries allows you to load eBooks and eAudios to your device. Don’t have a device but curious how eReaders work? Borrow one of our devices, which are pre-loaded with eBooks. Read below for more information about each of these services.
Windham Public Library owns all of the downloadable eBooks and eAudios which are in our 3M Cloud Library, and the collection will continue to grow each year. The downloads are available for free to all Windham Public Library card holders with an active, 14-digit account in good standing.
Coming September 1st!
The Zinio service will make available 50 digital magazines without having to leave the comfort of your home. The magazines are complete, with no holds, checkout periods, or maximum quantities! You can enjoy the magazines online, with a number of popular browsers or with Zinio apps, on all major devices. In September, visit this webpage to learn how to take advantage of this exciting new service.
The Maine Infonet Download Library is a shared service of over 200 Maine libraries, including Windham Public Library. Thousands of eBooks and eAudios are available for free to any library card holder who has an active account in good standing and who is a member of one of the participating Maine libraries. Instructional FAQs and the catalog of items can be found on the Maine Infonet Download Library webpage.

The Windham Public Library has 4 eReaders in the collection which are available for our patrons to borrow. Our two Kindle Paperwhite devices and two Nook devices come pre-loaded with a variety of titles. No downloading is needed! The Paperwhites have juvenile selections and the Nooks have teen and adult offerings, but patrons of all ages are welcome to check out either. Each device circulates for 3 weeks using a Windham Public Library card. Reserve yours today, or check with a Circulation Desk if you are interested in borrowing a device.
