What is it?
Freading is a different type of e-book service. You never wait because every e-book is available to everyone all the time. E-books are checked out with tokens for two weeks with an option to renew for two additional weeks. Renewals generally do not require additional tokens.
How does it work?
Every week, you'll receive two tokens to checkout and download e-books. You can use the tokens or save them to use until the next week. If unused, tokens will be removed after four weeks. Book values range from one to four tokens. Newer books are valued at four tokens. Older books have a lesser value.
It's really easy. Use your valid, full service library card to log-in to the Freading E-book service
. Browse or search for an e-book. Then check out and download to your computer or device. To get started, you'll need --
- a valid, full service Virginia Beach Public Library card and PIN.
- a computer or device (e-reader, tablet or smartphone)
- a free Adobe ID to manage your e-books and authenticate your reading app
- to download and install Adobe Digital Edition software (optional for mobile app users)
