WILBOR E-Book Downloads

You will need to do the initial set up once in order to download the management software to your computer.

Initial Set Up
  1. Go to the WILBOR website.
  2. Click on the “Login” tab, choose your library from the list, and log in with your library barcode number.
  3. After logging in, scroll down until you see “Digital Software” in the left column, and click on “Adobe Digital Editions.” This is the software you’ll use to manage your e-books from WILBOR.
  4. On the next WILBOR screen, click on ‘Get Adobe Digital Editions.”
  5. A new browser window will open up at Adobe’s website. Click on “Download Now.”
  6. Click on “Install.”
  7. Click on “Install” at the confirmation screen.
  8. Click on “Yes” to confirm the download and installation.
  9. Follow the install wizard to finish the download.
  10. Agree to the terms and conditions.
  11. Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) should now be installed. You may have to authorize the computer and set up an Adobe ID. To do that, go to the "Library” menu in ADE, select “Authorize Computer,” and follow the instructions.
Downloading Books
  1. Go back to the WILBOR website. Find the ebook you wish to check out and click on “Add to Cart” (If your only choices are "Add to Wait List” and “Add to Wish List,” the book is already checked out to someone, and you won’t be able to check it out at this time).
  2. Go to your Cart and click “Proceed to Checkout.”
  3. Confirm checkout. Note that you may have 3 items checked out at 1 time, and ebooks circulate for 14 days. You can return ebooks before the due date. If you do not return early, they are automatically returned to the collection after 14 days.
  4. When the book has been checked out, and you’re ready to download to your computer, click on “Download.”
  5. Tell the computer which software you want to use to open the file. It should default to "Adobe Digital Editions.” If it does not, browse to find ADE and select it. Click on OK. (If OK is greyed out, click anywhere on the window to make it active, then OK will be available to click.)
  6. The book will be downloaded to ADE. You can read the book on your computer at this point, just select it from the ADE library list.
Transferring to a Reader Device
  1. To transfer to an e-reader device, turn on your device and connect it to the computer. It may take a few moments for the computer, and then for ADE, to “see” the device and recognize it.
  2. If it is the first time you have used that device with this installation of ADE, you will need to authorize the device. A screen will pop up when you connect the device. Click on “Authorize Device.”
  3. Your device will appear in the left column of the window. To transfer the book to the device, just drag the book’s icon to the left column and “drop” it over the device’s icon.
  4. The book is now transferred to the device where you may read it for up to 14 days. To see the book on the device from ADE, click on the device’s icon in the left column of the window. The book may appear in various places depending on the device. On the Nook, for example, the book will appear in “My Documents” within “My Library.”
Returning a Book Early
If you'd like to return a book early, open Adobe Digital Editions, then open the library list and click on the small arrow just to the left of the title you wish to return. Click on “Return Borrowed Item.” The book is now returned. If you don't return the book early, it will automatically return it after the 14-day lending period.
