Borrow ebooks with Freading

The Appomattox Regional Library System offers ebook lending through Freading!

Browse for ebooks from Freading.

Every Monday morning, you are given 5 tokens. Each ebook download uses between 1 and 4 tokens, depending on demand for the book. Unused tokens rollover for four weeks. After 4 weeks, all tokens reset to 5 again.

The loan period is 2 weeks. After 2 weeks, they can be renewed for another 2 weeks. Renewals for the newest titles cost 1 download token, but older books renew for no cost.

Downloading requires both an active library account in good standing (barcode & pin required for download) and an Adobe ID.

Freading is compatible with most ereaders and mobile devices including:

  • Barnes & Noble Nook
  • Apple iPad and iPhone
  • Android tablets and smartphones
  • Kobo e-reader
  • Sony Reader
  • any computer by downloading the free software Adobe Digital Editions
  • Amazon Kindle Fire (other Kindle models do not work with Freading); see the Freading FAQ for special instructions for Kindle Fire

There are free Freading applications for Android and Apple devices.

Freading is provided to all public libraries in the state of Virginia by the Library of Virginia through funding from by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
