Q. How do I use Freading on a Nexus?


You need three things (besides a Nexus tablet):

  1. a valid Huntsville-Madison County Public Library card and four-digit PIN
  2. the Freading app
  3. an Adobe Digital Editions ID


If you know your library card number and PIN, visit the HMCPL website, and click on "My Digital Library" in the top left-hand corner of the screen.

Log in with your library card number and PIN.

Scroll down until you see the Freading link. It should look like this below:

Freading link


Click on the word Freading, and it will open the Freading platform. There will be an icon to take you to the Freading App download.

OR, you may click on the link to "Google play" to download the Freading app before you get to the platform.

Either way, you will be able to easily download the app.

The next part is where some users get confused. You do not need to download Adobe Digital Editions onto your Nexus. Instead, you must register your ADE id once inside the app.

If you do not have an ADE id, visit http://www.adobe.com/products/digital-editions/faq.html for more information.

To register your ADE id with your Freading App:

  1. While in the Freading App, click on the "Android Device button." This button is in the bottom right right corner and looks like three dots in a vertical line.
  2. Then click on the "Account" icon. You will be prompted to enter your ADE id.

Voila! You are ready to download books and get reading.
