Nook and iPad Instructions

Up-to-date instructions on how to download ebooks to your Nook can be found at the Official Blog of the New Hampshire Downloadable Books Service. iPad users can find up-to-date instructions here. Please feel free to call the library or stop by for help following any of these instructions!


Sony readers require both Adobe Digital Editions and Sony Reader software. Your books will download to the Sony software and can be found in your Sony Library.

If your device doesn’t show up in the Bookshelf list a few seconds after connecting, disconnect and try again. Sometimes it takes a little longer to recognize that the device is there.

If you accidentally check out a Kindle book or an audiobook format, it will remain on your NHDB account until the checkout expires. The library cannot correct this.

There are Help screens on the NHDB site that answer many questions about how the service works in general, as well as with specific devices.
