How to download to your Kindle

Enjoy eBooks on your Kindle

eBooks can be transferred from a computer Windows or Mac to an eBook reader using Adobe Digital Editions.

Easy Setup

  1. Visit Richland Library's eBook  collection
  2. Browse for a Kindle  eBook  and check it out  using your  library card number.
  3. Click  the  "Get for Kindle" button. This opens the website. You may be required to sign in with  your account if you are not  already logged in.
  4. Select  a Kindle  device or Kindle reading app. Click  the  "Get library book" button and sync your device or app to download the  book, or choose to send it to your  device via USB.

An active Wi-Fi connection is required for wireless delivery to a Kindle  device.  If your Kindle  is not  Wi-Fi capable or you  do  not  have an active Wi-Fi connection, read Amazon's instructions for transferring files via USB.


Easy Return

  1. Go to Amazon and from the Kindle menu on the right, select "Manage Your Kindle".
  2. Sign into your  Amazon account.
  3. Select  the  "Actions" drop down menu next  to the book you want to return.
  4. From the  menu, select "Return This Book". (Avoid selecting "Delete From Library", as this will delete the  book from  your Kindle library but  will not  return it).
  5. Select  "Yes" to return the book.
  6. After  you return the book, it will still show in Your Kindle Library list. To remove it from the list, select "Actions" again, and  from the drop down menu select "Delete From Library".


More than 5,000 titles can be downloaded from the library's website.

You can take  your library anywhere you  go. Download the  latest bestseller or that biography you've been meaning to read. What  are you  waiting for? Grab your  Kindle, iPad, Nook, eReader, iPhone  and start  downloading today.
