Borrowing an EPUB eBook for a Nook Simple Touch Handout

Patrons with Nook Simple Touch, Nook Color, Nook Tablet, and Kobo devices use the desktop program Adobe Digital Editions to download and transfer Adobe EPUB eBooks to their devices.

Update (4.21.2015): If the newest version of the Adobe Digital Editions software (3.0) causes your eBooks to expire in 7 days (instead of 14 days), please uninstall the software and install the 2.x version of the software. Be sure to deauthorize and reauthorize the program with your Adobe ID.
  • Steps to quickly de-authorize Adobe Digital Editions:
  • On a PC: CTRL+Shift+D
  • On a Mac: CMD+Shift+D


These instructions cover: 
Download the handout in Word format.


Note that Nook Color and Nook Tablet devices are also compatible with the OverDrive Media Console mobile app. The app can be found in and installed from the Nook's app store. The app itself needs to be authorized with an Adobe ID -- even if the device is already authorized with an Adobe ID from being connected to Adobe Digital Editions.

The Nook HD and Nook HD+ are not compatible with Adobe Digital Editions and cannot be used to transfer books from the computer. All eBook transfers are done through the OverDrive Media Console mobile app.
