NEW! The Manchester City Library is pleased to announce the expansion of its eBook service with the addition of the 3M Cloud Library.

Made possible in-part by a grant from the Samuel P. Hunt Foundation. Note: 3M Cloud Library is not yet compatible with Amazon Kindle readers except for the Kindle Fire.
