eReader Applications/Software

In most instances your device will require an application to read eBooks you loan from us.

This is because our eBooks are protected with Digital Rights Management (DRM) meaning 'epub' or 'pdf' formatted books will appear as 'acsm' files on your device.

Adobe Digital Editions

If you want to read Library eBooks on your PC or laptop we recommend the Adobe Digital Editions application. Other devices may need this application to view Library eBooks, or to enable Library eBooks to be downloaded onto them via computer.

Bluefire Reader

We recommend this application for eBook reading using Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod touch devices (requires iOS 3.0 or higher). There is also a version available for Android smartphone or tablet.


Helpful eReader application for your Android smartphone or tablet. Turn pages with gestures, adjust the font size or use the night mode in dark environments.


The Aldiko Book Reader allows smartphone owners to discover, browse, shop, download, read and organize eBooks on Android devices.
