  1. Connect your e-reader to a computer.
  2. Install and authorise ADE on your computer.
  3. Go to Sign in with your HKPL account. Click “Go To Shelf”, and then “Read With…” under the icon to download an e-book (in EPUB or PDF format) which you would like to read on your e-reader.
  4. Make sure you are in the “Library” view of ADE.  Your e-reader should appear under “Devices”.  You may have to accept a file transfer prompt on your e-reader in order for it to appear in ADE.
  5. Click and drag the e-book to your e-reader.
