SHARE is Now Available at Doyle Public Library!

Interlibrary Loan or SHARE

  Simply go to http://doyp.illshareit.com, select "Illinois Heartland Library System" from the library choices provided, enter your 14-digit membership number (on the back of your library card) as your user ID.  Your password is the last 4 digits of your membership number (which can be changed for privacy). 

Cloud Library E-books, as you like it!

  Simply go to http://yourcloudlibrary.com, then select the Cloud Library download that you need for your Mac, Apple, Google, Windows, Nook, Kindle Fire, or Chrome Webstore app download to your computer, phone or device. Just click on the specific app you need from the following list (as shown in the graphic below), which is found on the Cloud Library website, then follow the directions for download and installation. 

 

IMPORTANT:  Be sure to have your device or phone Settings changed to "allow other party downloads" to your phone or device.  Instructions for how to do this on your specific device can be found at http://yourcloudlibrary.com.

  Download the Cloud Library reading application, then select "Illinois Heartland Library System" from the library choices provided, use your membership barcode as your user id and the last 4 digits of your number as your password (which can be changed for privacy), same as you used for your SHARE interlibrary loan account.

   Once downloaded, the prompts will take you to Illinois Heartland Library System (Doyle Library's connection), by asking for your city and location.

  We encourage all patrons to try this exciting and convenient new way to access free e-books and free e-audiobooks.  

Doyle Public Library staff offers training sessions, one-on-one help, and easy-to-follow instructions to help you begin using SHARE as easily and quickly as possible.  While anything new always takes some getting used to, we think you will find that SHARE will speed up your check out time in our library and give you access to many more resources in a convenient way.  You'll even be able to review your reading history to help you remember which books you've already read!

   Reading free e-books and listening to e-audiobooks from your computer, phone or electronic device is an easy way to carry scores of books with you whenever and where ever you want to read.

  Our partnership with IHLS (Illinois Heartland Library System) makes this service possible and easy to borrow books and resources from libraries all over Illinois and then having these resources delivered directly to us at our library in Raymond.  

   You can simply call us or ask us to order (place a hold) on any books and resources that you would like and we can usually have the book or resource waiting for you at the library within a few days, since we now have delivery every weekday here at DPL. 

  Depending on how you have your notices set up you will be notified by phone, text or email when your resource arrives here at the library.

   Many patrons like to manage their own accounts and find it beneficial to order their own library resources directly on their computer, phone or device.

What is SHARE?

Doyle Public Library has partnered with Illinois Heartland Library System to join SHARE, a group of libraries in Central and Southern Illinois that have joined together to create the largest automation consortium in the nation.  For member libraries, the consortium helps reduce the cost of library automation, technical support, staff, and training.  It makes what was previously too expensive for a small library's budget, now a very reasonable possibility.

For library patrons, it means speedier checkouts, the ability to get in line for the newest book via a wait list, the ability to browse an online catalog of books--and check them out using a computer or mobile device.  Now, Doyle Public Library patrons can use their home computer or mobile device to search either our library catalog or the SHARE catalog, which contains over 10 million items in a variety of formats.  The search is simple, and once patrons find what they want, they can check them out with the click of a button.  The requested items are then delivered to Doyle Public Library within days via the Illinois Heartland Library System courier service.  Once finished with the book, patrons return them to Doyle Public Library and the courier service delivers them back to their home library.

With hundreds of libraries sharing their collections, patrons have faster access to a wider variety of resources.

How does SHARE affect me?

If were a previous Doyle Public Library cardholder, you will need to complete a new user form that updates your address and phone information and includes an email address.  You will then be issued a new library card that will contain your own unique barcode number.  

If you're not already a cardholder, please visit the library to complete the registration form.  You'll need to bring two forms of identification, at least one of which bears your name and address. These forms of identification include, but are not limited to, driver’s license, utility bills, official mail, or voter’s registration card. 

The new Doyle Public Library card with the barcode is your key to accessing SHARE.  Your barcode number will be scanned to check out books at our circulation desk, and it's what you will use to register to check out books online using SHARE.
