    You have to download Adobe eBooks application onto your pc, this allows you to view books with DRM (Digital Rights Management) which is how the libraries keep you from allowing other people to use the book on their computers or iPads. You download the application, install it on your PC, sign up for the library service with you local library and download the books to your computer and then transfer them to you iPad. The Bluefire Reader is the app on the iPad, that the eBook is sent to, so you can read it. Your book will expire in 21 days, usually, depending on the library. You can renew if you want, just like a real book.

    Here's where you can download the iPad manual.
