Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) is a free software used for PCs, Macs, and most e-readers to manage and support e-books. In order to download, checkout, print, or copy/paste text from many of the e-books subscribed to by the Libraries, you will have to download ADE to your own computer. If your device is not on the list of ADE supported devices please see the information on Bluefire, below.
