Congratulations on your new e-reader, tablet, or mobile device! We hope you enjoy borrowing digital items from the Free Library of Philadelphia. Here's a quick guide to get you on your way.
First of all, finding digital items to check out on the Free Library's website is simple. You can start at the pink 'Download Media' button on our homepage or by taking a look at this video that introduces our various digital platforms and shows you how to get around our site.
Next, there are basically three ways to download library ebooks. The option that's right for you depends upon the type of device you own. Find a guide for each below...
1. Downloading ebooks for tablets, phones, and mobile devices (Including Kindle Fire, Nook Color and Nook HD)
2. Downloading ebooks for Kindle (excluding Kindle Fire)
3. Downloading ebooks to a Nook (excluding Nook Tablets, Color, and HD) or other dedicated e-reader
Finally, you may discover that not every ebook or audiobook you're interested in is currently available from the Free Library. Find out why here.
