 Kobo, Sony & other eInk eReaders


eReaders or "eInk" devices are popular for their lightweight design and long battery life. These simpler devices tend not to have software installed on them that knows how to open and unlock Library eBook files. To load library eBooks onto this type of reader you'll need to use a desktop or laptop computer as an intermediary, using software installed on your computer to transfer the eBook files by USB cable to your device.

The following Library services are enjoyable on an eInk eReader:

  • eBooks from OverDrive
  • eBooks from Freading
 
Examples of eInk devices:
  • Kobo Aura / HD
  • Kobo Touch, Kobo Glo
  • Sony eReaders (PRS and PRS-T)
