Adobe Digital Editions is free software that allows you to check out and read ePub format e-books from Libraries. This software manages your checkouts and protects books from being illegally copied. You'll need this software on your computer or on your mobile device to use ePubs. For instance, if you have a Nook, you'll use Adobe Digital Editions on your computer to check out the book from our Library then transfer it to your device using USB. If you have an Apple device, see the information on this page about the Bluefire Reader.
If you have a Chromebook, you will not be able to use Adobe Digital Editions but can read books in .pdf format. For more information about reading off-line using a Chromebook, please consult the Google Chromebook help page.
