New Netlibrary Features!

(General Information) Permanent link


The Thrift Library recently upgraded its NetLibrary account to allow downloading eBooks to your home or office computer, laptop, cell phone, eBook reader or other mobile devices.


Note that while two thirds of the library’s 36,000 NetLibrary titles are downloadable, some are not. You can tell if an eBook is downloadable by opening the book and looking under the eContent Details Tab. If the following link is present- Check Out & Download this eBook – then you can download it.  Also, you can limit your search to downloadable titles by selecting the format - Downloadable eBooks - in the advanced search mode.


Compatible portable devices include the Barnes & Noble Nook, Several Sony Digital Readers, and the COOL-ER. NetLibrary does not yet support Amazon’s Kindle. All devices that support  Adobe Content Server are compatible, although some work better than others with NetLibrary eBooks.


eBooks may be “checked out” to your device for 3-7 days.

NOTE: You must first download Adobe Digital Editions to your computer or mobile device in order to download and read NetLibrary eBooks off line. This free software is not the same as the more commonly used Adobe Reader. Users will have to register and set up a personal account with Adobe. Here’s how.
