Join an East Riding of Yorkshire library
If you are not already a library member you will need to join an East Riding of Yorkshire library


Before you start

  1. Check that your device is compatible with our eBook service. Visit the Adobe website for the current list of compatible devices.
  2. Download an eReader app to your device. We recommend the Libro eBook Reader for Android and Apple devices.
  3. Create an Adobe ID. This is required to authenticate your eReader for use with our service. All your devices must be assigned the same Adobe ID for them to be able to read your loan titles. If you do not have an Adobe ID, visit the Adobe website
  4. We recommend at this point that you add and save your Adobe ID to your eReader app. Some eReader apps may call your Adobe ID a DRM.

How do I choose an eBook to download?

You can choose an eBook to download by:

  1. Either browsing 'Latest eBooks', 'Collections', 'Genre' or by searching for titles or authors in the Search box.
  2. Select the title that interests you.
  3. If the title is available and you wish to download it, select 'Add'.
  4. This will take you to the 'Basket Items' Screen.
  5. When you are ready, select the required loan period (1 to 21 days).
  6. Select 'Checkout'. The title will then be processed.
  7. When processing is complete, select 'Download'. (This may open your eReader app automatically, if not, select your eReader app).
  8. If you haven't already added and saved your Adobe ID / DRM, your eReader app will direct you to authenticate it.


Do I have to do this every time I want to download an eBook?
No. Once you have set up your device and assigned your Adobe ID / DRM your chosen eBook will automatically download to your eReader app.


Do libraries have WiFi?
Yes. All our static libraries have free unlimited WiFi.
