You can download some of our e-book titles, however you don't need to download the titles to read them. We would advise using the 'read online' option, which you can do using any computer, or mobile device, with internet access.

Instructions for downloading e-book content varies depending on the supplier, but often involves installing Adobe Digital Editions (ADE). ADE is a Digital Rights Management software that suppliers use to prevent breach of copyright on the digital content. If you don't have ADE installed, you will not be able to download (please note you can only enable your ADE account on 5 devices at any one time).

Once you have installed ADE (http://www.adobe.com/products/digital-editions.html), click the download option.

You should be prompted to save the link in one of your computer drives.

Once you have saved the link, you must then open the link from the drive you saved it to – the e-book should then automatically download and open in ADE.

The only advantage of downloading an e-book is you can transfer it to a portable device such as an e-reader that has ADE installed on it – it will still expire after the 7 day period. If you plan to read the e-book on a PC, or device you can connect to the internet, the library would recommend you use the ‘Read online’ option.
