Download eBooks to your computer (PC or Mac)


Before you start,

 You'll want to download and install Adobe Digital Editions to your computer.
If you don’t already have it, you can download it (for free) from Adobe at

You’ll also want to have a free Adobe ID account (Adobe requires it to authenticate Adobe Digital Editions).  You can do that at


Some titles are available in "OverDrive READ" format.  These titles are able to be read just using your web browser (so you don't have to download anything)


·         To download eBooks, start at our website, or directly at our eBooks website,

·         Select a book you want and make sure it’s available in PDF, EPUB or OverDrive READ formats.

·         Click on the “Borrow” button.

·         If you haven’t already logged in, you will be prompted to enter your 14-digit Morley Library card number.

·        You are then taken to the "Bookshelf" part of your account.  You will be able to select which format you'd like.  Click on the "Download" button and select the format you prefer.  Then click on "Confirm & Download".  If the book offers the OverDrive READ format, there will also be a button for that option.

·       Your computer should come up with a box asking what to do.  Click “Open” and your computer should automatically open the eBook in Adobe Digital Editions.  Click “Save” if you prefer to manually save the eBook to your computer.  You can open the Adobe Digital Editions program and simply drag the book file into the window.

·         You can now read the eBook right on your computer.  Double click on the book or click the picture of the open book to enter “Reading” mode.

·         In “Library” mode, each book will have a small arrow at the top-left corner.  Clicking on this arrow brings up a menu.  From this menu, you can Open or Delete the book.  You can also get Item Info, which gives you basic information about the book.  The last option is to “Return Borrowed Item”; if you finish with a book early, you can use this to “return” the eBook and have it taken from your record.  After returning, you are free to delete the file.

·         If you have any questions, you can come into the library, call us at (440) 352-3383 (ask for Reference)
