Downloading eBooks

Instructions for downloading Overdrive ebooks vary depending on whether you are using a PC or a Mac, and whether you will read the title on a Sony Reader, B&N nook or on your computer.  You will need to sign up for an Adobe ID if you don’t have one already, and install Adobe Digital Editions.  The Adobe ID controls the checkout period for the eBook, sort of like your library card.  If you are using a Sony Reader, then you also need to have the Sony Reader Library installed.  Choose your eBooks and check them out through the NH Overdrive website.
