Learn how to read or download library ebooks on your e-reader, tablet, or other mobile device.

Apps: Why Bluefire?

There are a number of different apps* which can be used to access library ebooks on the iPad/iPhone and the Kindle Fire.  [*EBL ebooks downloaded to a mobile device are only compatible with the free Bluefire app]

We recommend Bluefire Reader as a great app to try because it is free, it is easy to use, and it provides good tools for highlighting and note-taking.

However, you may prefer a different app! Adobe provides a list of all the Android and iOS apps which are compatible with ebooks that use Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) authorization.
