Is it possible to download books from library to iPad?
Depends on your library system. Most can. Talk to a friendly reference librarian

Yu need to contact your local library to see what form the ebooks are in, then make sure you have a book reader app which can store and display them.
The Overdrive Media Console app is for one of the big library ebook sharing solutions. The Bluefire Reader app is for the other. Between the two they cover just about every library that has ebook sharing available.
As others have said, you'll have to check with your local library to find out which to use and how to get books onto them. If like ours, they've got a pamphlet somewhere.
Some libraries are also using the Kindle for ebook lending. Ours has a couple, but they are limited to sharing devices with preloaded books, not sharing through your own Kindle or Kindle app. That might just be here though. I'm not what the full extend of Amazon's libary involvement is.
I download Kindle books to my ipad from my library. The library has both Adobe format books and Kindle format. Also our library has magazines available for download using the Zinio app. Great library!! You will need an account with Amazon for KIndle books borrowing as the book goes to your KIndle account which keeps track of it. But its FREE!!
n4uau thank you for posting that!! I had NO idea my library also offers magazine borrowing through Zinio. I had to go searching for it but found it. A tiny bit clunky getting it all set up and working but what a nice little bonus I had no idea about.
Can I use more than one library with this Overdrive Media Console? Or am I limited to just one?
The app is free. Get the app and instructions from whatever libraries you want and give it a try.
Zinio...yes, the borrowing of the magazines was a real find!
with overdrive you can go to many libraries and I have gone to two. Probably same with kindle reader as library sends book to kindle who downloads to your device.
