How to get started
Connect your eReader to your computer.
On your computer, locate our OverDrive collection at www.ebtpl.org.
Sign in with your library card number and last name.
Click the Download button for the borrowed eBook.
If prompted, authorize ADE with a free Adobe ID.
(this is required for downloading Adobe [DRM-protected] eBooks).
Downloaded eBooks open in ADE.
To transfer an eBook to your eReader, open the “Library View” in ADE (click the Library button
in the top-left corner, if needed). From there, drag and drop the eBook into your eReader,
which should appear on the left under “Devices.” You may need to accept a file-transfer prompt
on your eReader in order for it to appear in ADE.
Once you’ve transferred a library eBook, you can read it on your device just like any other eBook.
During the transfer process, your eReader will be automatically authorized with the same Adobe ID
you used on your computer.
If you’re using a Sony Reader and it isn’t recognized by ADE, you may need to install and use
the Sony Reader software to transfer eBooks.
