The Freading application is for reading EPUB books and PDF books. The application was developed for users of the Freading Ebook Service.

The Freading (free reading) Ebook Service was developed by Library Ideas, LLC and is sold to libraries of all types around the world. End users are registered cardholders of participating libraries. Check with your local library for participation.

The end user should use their browser to navigate the library website, then download the book from a library website into this application. Once in the application, the EPUB or PDF book can be explored and read.

The Freading application is designed to lend full support for Adobe DRM and uses Adobe ID for Authentication.

The Freading application includes many features that you would expect for a good reading experience such as tap or swipe to turn pages, remembering the last page read, and selectable text size.

Can’t access library to download

This app was working fine until suddenly the “get books” tab stopped working. It shows a blank page instead of connecting me to my online borrowing library. Tried turning the phone on and off and reinstalling the app. No dice. No longer have access. ☹️
