Getting Started with eBooks

Attend Our Event!

Do you have an eReader, tablet, or smartphone, but are unsure about how to check out library books on it?

Join us for a drop-in session on Saturday, September 14, at 10 am (Main Library) or later that afternoon at 1 pm (Evergreen Branch) to learn about downloading books from the library's OverDrive collection onto your eReader, tablet, or smartphone. No reservations needed!

A list of OverDrive-compatible devices is available at http://www.overdrive.com/resources/drc/

Remember to bring a valid Everett Library card, which is required to check out eBooks.Don't have a card yet? Come visit us and get one today!

Adobe Info and Links

Most devices will access ebooks by downloading them in Adobe ePub or Adobe PDF format, which requires the use of an Adobe ID. If you do not have an Adobe ID, you can easily create one with any active email account.

Don't have an email account? Check out guides from our databases about email basics or how to create a GMail account.

E-ink devices may also need a program called Adobe Digital Editions in order to move downloaded ebooks from your comptuer to your e-ink device.
