DOWNLOAD EBOOKS

To download an ebook...

Make sure that you have installed Adobe Digital Editions. If you haven't installed this software yet, please visit the Adobe Digital Editions download page and follow the installation instructions provided.

On first launch of Adobe Digital Editions click on Help > Authorize Computer. In the following screen choose Adobe ID from the dropdown menu and enter your Adobe ID and password. If you don't have an Adobe ID yet please click on the Create an Adobe ID link on the right hand side or visit Adobe's Create Adobe ID page.

On the download page press the Download eBook button. When you get a pop-up dialogue box asking you whether you would like to Open, Run or Save, make sure that you select Open With and choose Adobe Digital Editions. Adobe Digital Editions will then import the eBook file and you can find it in the Borrowed section on the left side.

To transfer an eBook to an eReader device...

Attach your eReader device to your computer. It should appear in Adobe Digital Editions in the list on the left side. Now just drag the eBook onto the device.

Why can't I download eAudiobooks from an iPad/iPhone?

Unfortunately, due to the restrictions that Apple has put in place on their iPads/iPhones, it is not possible to directly download eAudiobooks to the iPad/iPhone through the Safari browser. You can, however, download via your computer and transfer the eAudiobooks via iTunes. Or you can use the BorrowBox Library mobile apps available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, if your library offers this option.
