where to find the public library on nook


 I just purchesed a nook color and i don't know how to get to my home town library with the nook. I previously had a sony e-reader and it was very simple to do. After returning 3 faulty readers I went with the nook color.I still have adobe and e-reader on my computer as I have 5 books I purchesed from sony and want to finish reading them. I have tried everything and at this point not sure what to do . Any help will be greatly appreciated

Re: where to find the public library on nook

You cannot access your library's web site directly via the nook and download content.  To get library books, you'll need to use your computer to log in and download the loan material.  Then, with your Nook Color connected to your computer, use ADE (Adobe Digital Editions) to transfer the books (sideload) them onto your Nook.


I cannot remember who has posted the info before, but there are some step-by-step guides here - try a search and I'm sure you will find them.

Download ADE to your computer and install it. Then authorize your computer to activate the licensing.  Then go to the library site and download your book. When you are prompted to open or save the best way is to say open.  That will open ADE and the book will be active.


In ADE click the library icon in the top left to show all your books. Connect the NC and make sure it's awake. In ADE on the left you should see either a MEDIA folder or NOOK folder show up. Mine says MEDIA. Drag the book you want from the right side list to the media folder. 


When you are thru do a safely disconnect on the Nook device then unplug. The book you downloaded will show up in your library - under my files.  If you are on v 1.2 and you open the book it will then show up on the home screen.


You get rid of it off the nook about the same way.
