CloudLibrary is our new eBook vendor. It works on desktop computers, iOS devices, Android devices, Nook HD, Nook Color, and Kindle Fire devices; unfortunately, older Kindle models (such as e-ink models) are not supported, because the CloudLibrary works as an app-based program. Come in to the library to pick up instructions on how to get started if you need help!
Zinio is our vendor for eMagazines. Zinio can work through your desktop computer, iOS devices, and Android devices. You can access Zinio through this website, or you can feel free to come into the library and get a set of instructions.

We have a LulzBot TAZ 5 3D Printer installed at the Information Desk! Come on by and see it in action, or come to us with a print model in hand to get your work printed. The cost of printing is currently $0.05 per gram of filament used to create models, and $0.50 per hour that a given model takes on the printing bed. The total cost is rounded up to the nearest nickel. Most models, even big ones, are very inexpensive – the average cost to patrons who have had custom prints done here is about $3.50.
The Kinnelon Public Library has two button-making machines on permanent display on one of the four desks in the center of the downstairs library. Come and make yourself a button — the first one is free! Subsequent buttons are $0.25 each.
In the Teen section of the Library we have a collection of LittleBits, which are DIY circuit components that can be put together in any number of combinations. Explore and be creative!
Print & Paint Programs
Keep an eye out for our print & paint programs! The Makerspace will provide pre-printed 3D objects for patrons to paint and decorate and then take home. These programs are usually themed (Pokémon, Harry Potter, holiday, etc.), but we do also take requests.
Portable LED Projector
We have purchased a portable LED projector about the size of a (one-inch tall) wallet. This item is available to be borrowed by Kinnelon Library cardholders! Inquire at the front circulation desk.
The library features several eReaders that are available exclusively to Kinnelon patrons. We have e-Ink Nooks, e-ink Kindles, and several Kindle Fires available for patrons.
We offer tech support both on a walk-in basis and by appointment. If you come for a walk-in you may or may not encounter the library Technologist, but our staff is trained on all of our digital offerings and can assist you. If you have a more complicated problem or other concern, you may call the library to make an appointment with the Technologist.
