Some eBooks can be downloaded onto your computer or your device. You can find out if a book can be download by pressing the book icon, off to the left hand side of your screen.

If you download the full book you will need Adobe Digital Editions to read it. Because of copyright you cannot keep the downloaded book permanently.

The print icon is the image of a printer.

Because of copyright you can only print a limited number of pages. The print pop-up will tell you how many you can print.

At the very top of your screen you should see a link called Bookshelf. To add books to your bookshelf, press the icon with the image of a book and a plus sign.
You can turn on accessibility mode by going into your settings. Accessibility mode makes it easier for screen readers and for users with limited eyesight to read the text.
