First, go to BCPL’s cloudLibrary website at ( This site allows you to log in to your account, browse and check out titles. You cannot download but you can listen or read in a web browser if those options are available for the title you’ve selected.  You can also find titles that you would like to suggest to BCPL for purchase. To suggest titles for purchase, click the green Login button to log in to your account.



When the Login box opens, enter your BCPL Library Card Number without any spaces between the numbers and your PIN. Then click the Login button.



After you have logged in, click on the Filters option at the top of the page, and click on the words Suggestions for Library so that a blue checkmark appears on the right. Then close the Filters box by clicking on the x at the top right.



Now, type a title, an author or a subject in the search box with the magnifying glass. You will see titles the library owns that are similar to what you’ve entered (they will have a green BORROW button next to them).  You can borrow any of those titles, or suggest titles the library does not own (these will have a blue Suggest to Library) button. To suggest a title, just click on the blue Suggest to Library button to the right of the title.



BCPL’s Collection Development department will review your suggestions for cloudLibrary purchases. Be sure to check BCPL’s cloudLibrary website again in a few weeks to see if the title has been added. You can then borrow the book or place it on hold.
