Installing Adobe Digital Editions 2.0

Not all eBook readers require you to use Adobe Digital Editions. Here are some of the more popular eReaders that require the software:
  • Nook Simple Touch 
  • An older Sony Reader (that doesn’t allow for wireless public library downloads) 
  • All Kobo devices. 
Devices that can use ADE or the OverDrive Media Console app:
  • Nook Tablet 
  • Nook Color 
Note: Nook HD and Nook HD+ users must use the OverDrive Media Console app found in the device’s app store. These devices are not compatible with Adobe Digital Editions.

Find the software downloads on our new site:

A new tab or browser window will open and you'll be taken to the Adobe Digital Editions site to download the software. 

Select the Windows or Mac version of the software. (I'm using Firefox on a Windows 7 computer today.)
On Firefox, you'll be prompted to save the file. 
Once the file is downloaded, find the download and run the installer. 
Decide on your setup options...
Don't change the installation location!
Agree to the license agreement

Now you'll need to register the software with an Adobe ID. If you already have an Adobe ID, enter the information now. If you need an Adobe ID, follow the provided link to get one. It's free and easy!

You are now ready to start downloading Adobe EPUB and Open EPUB eBooks from the New Hampshire Downloadable Books site!
