The folks from the West Vancouver Memorial Library posted a video tutorial on YouTube going through the process of how to setup the Kobo Aura One to download ebooks for free from public libraries.
The video walks you through the entire process from start to finish, showing you how to add your library account, search for and borrow ebooks, and how to return ebooks early.
It’s a good beginner’s guide for those new to borrowing ebooks.
One of the best new features on the Kobo Aura One is the ability to download library ebooks directly from the Kobo store for free.
All that is required is a library card from a public library.
A number of public libraries have a surprising number of bestselling and popular titles available from big publishers.
If you haven’t tried borrowing ebooks from your library before, the Kobo Aura One makes the process easy. Other Kobo ereaders require downloading library ebooks to a computer and using software to sideload them via USB.
Note that Kobo states the library feature is only available to customers with participating libraries in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.
