  • Most library e-books allow a set number of pages to be downloaded in PDF format to keep (decided by publisher and vendor). (Depending on the platform, the page numbers are reset every hour or every 24 hours and can then be downloaded again until the entire book has been downloaded to keep.)
  •  Most library e-books are DRM (digital rights management) protected e-books,
  • Free Adobe Digital Editions software must be installed in order to download and read full DRM protected e-books. 
  • DRM protected e-books expire at set times decided by the publisher, however, they can be immediately redownloaded.
