  • This will take you to the Sign In screen. Choose your library from the drop-down list (Monroe Township). Then sign in with your library card number – the whole thing!
  • Even though our library website will be changing, this site will stay the same.
  • Make sure to mention that for every book, it will show all the available formats. Make sure you choose the correct format for your device. If a copy is checked out, they will have the option to “Place a Hold” and enter their email address to be informed when it is available. “ Proceed to checkout” very reminiscent of online shopping (like with Amazon) that will be familiar to most people. They can also “Continue Browsing” if they want to add more books before checking out.
  • On the checkout screen, you can review the lending period options available (are you a speed reader or do you like to take your time?). Then just click “Confirm Check Out”.
  • Finally you come to the Download screen. Here you can review the Checkout date (today) and when your book is due back (on the right side of the screen).
  • Log in to your Amazon account. As you can see, this is my account. I call my Kindle “Meg’s Kindle,” because I am not very creative. But I also have a Kindle reader on my phone and my PC, so they will all appear on the drop-down menu.
  • The first time you connect your Nook with Adobe Digital Editions, you will have to authorize the Nook with your Adobe ID to be able to transfer protected content to and from the Nook.
  • Sorry, I couldn’t find any better images of this.
  • Drag and drop books from other bookshelves (All Items or Borrowed) by hovering over the Nook bookshelf until it’s highlighted and the little red “x” turns into a green “+” sign.
  • This will take you to the Sign In screen. Choose your library from the drop-down list (Monroe Township). Then sign in with your library card number – the whole thing!
  • To view your library eBook on your Nook, select  My Library , and then  View My Documents . You may need to press  Check for New Content  to display the eBooks you just transferred.
  • A history of what books you check out will be available on your Amazon account. If you decide to buy the book in the future, or check it out again, your notes and bookmarks will be automatically brought over to the new copy.
