Still Need Help?


  • If you are having trouble with any of the cloudLibrary apps, we recommend that you try closing open apps and restarting your device. If that process doesn't help, try uninstalling/reinstalling the app. This corrects many issues.
  • You can also connect directly to the cloudLibrary Website for additional apps or support.
  • Please send an email via our BCPL cloudLibrary Support form for support not addressed above. Be as thorough as possible in the description of your issue and include as many details (type of app and device, error messages, etc.) as possible.
