This is a step by step presentation on how to download eBooks to your kobo eBook reader. This comprehensive tutorial covers the kobo Vox, Kobo Touch, and Kobo WiFi.

Script KOBO WIFI DEVICE EBOOKS Hi. Maria here, from the World Public Library. Today we’re going to learn how to use the Kobo Wifi, Kobo Touch and Kobo Vox devices to download and enjoy eBooks. Later we will also learn more about the unique features of the Kobo Vox such as its full color display, web browser and audio integration. Lets start by learning about all three devices ability to download eBooks. We will use the Kobo WiFi as an example. To begin, plug your Kobo USB cable into your Kobo device. Then plug the other end of your USB cable into your PC or laptop. The screen on your Kobo device should now read “Read or manage?” Select “MANAGE LIBRARY” Your device should now read “Connected. . .” Now, use your PC or laptop to navigate to the World Public Library website. You can find us by typing into your browser or search for us using Google by typing in World Public Library. Then select our site from the list of search results. After arriving at our homepage, be sure to log in by selecting the “My Account” button at the top right corner of the page. Then enter your username and password and click “sign in”. Now that you’re signed in, lets navigate back to the home page and review some of our exciting and easy to use eBook discovery tools. There are our daily picks. Our author spotlight, which updates regularly, and a list of local favorites. This list is great because it gives you insight as to what readers in your area are enjoying. You can also choose a book by browsing through our authors in the authors community section. Another fantastic tool is our eBook finder search engine located near the top of the homepage. Now lets find a book. First hover your cursor over the books tab located in the main menu bar. In the drop down menu that appears you’re able to see five different collections of eBooks. Our Academic, eBook, Graphic Novel, Journal Magazine and Audio eBook Collections each offer unique and exciting content. We will come back to a few of these later. For now, select the eBook Library Collections. The eBook Library collections contain more than 2 million books. You can navigate through the pages of the various collections by clicking the forward and back arrow buttons near the bottom of the page. All of these collections have wonderful offerings. Lets select one, The Blackmask Online Collection, by clicking its image. Now lets download one of my favorite books, 1984, by clicking the image above the book title. This brings us to the “book details page” where you can find all sorts of useful information about the book you’ve selected such as the author, publisher and even the file size. Now lets save this book to your Kobo WiFi device. First left-click the title of the book. At this point you will be prompted with a login window. You are required to log in twice because your profile and your eBook access accounts are on two different servers. Your profile will last forever but your eBook access account requires annual dues. Enter your username and password and click ok. From here, the download process for each internet browser is slightly different so lets walk through each browser step by step. If using Mozilla Firefox, in the window that pops be sure that Save File has been selected and click ok again. One additional window will appear. We will come back to this later. If using Internet Explorer, a small window will pop up on the very bottom of the screen. Select Cancel. Now that you’re logged in, you can right-click the title of the book. And select Save Target As. If using Safari, click cancel in the window that pops up. Then close the downloads window. Now right-click the title of the book. Then select “download linked file as”. If using Google Chrome, right click the title of the book. Then select “Save Link As” Regardless of the browser you’re using, one additional window will appear. Scroll down the left side of this window to locate your Kobo device and select then click save. Once you’ve saved your book, you must eject the Kobo device. To do this, select the start button at the bottom left corner of your screen. Now select “computer”. Find your Kobo on the right side of the window that pops up, right-click your device and select “Eject”. Now you can find your new book available to enjoy on your device. KOBO VOX AUDIO BOOKS Unlike the Kobo Wifi and Kobo Touch, The Kobo Vox device also allows us to download and listen to audio books. First, remember to use your Kobo USB cable to connect your Kobo device to your PC or laptop. Turning your attention back to your PC, after arriving at our homepage, make sure to log in by clicking the “My Account” button at the top right corner of the home page. Now that you’re logged in, lets find an audio book. Once again, hover your cursor over the books tab. This time, select the Audio eBook Collection. This takes takes us to our audio library which has more than 23 thousand books to choose from. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is a classic. Lets select this audio book by clicking on the image above the book’s title. All of the books in the audio collection have been divided into chapters for your listening convenience. The chapters are listed on this page. Lets select chapter 1. This brings us to the “Book Details page” which has all sorts of useful information about this book. If you scroll down you’ll see that the book has automatically begun playing and that the other chapters of the book are listed below the audio player here. Now lets save this audio book to our Kobo device. Remember. The download process for each internet browser is slightly different so be sure to refer to the earlier portion of the video if you need help with the download of your book. Before you enjoy your new audio book, remember to eject the Kobo device. After ejecting you can find your Audio Book available to listen to on your Kobo Vox device. KOBO VOX SURFING THE WEB The Kobo Vox is also web ready. This means you can use your Kobo device to navigate to the World Public Library web page and download eBooks and Audio Books directly onto your device; making the world’s books even more accessible. Here’s how easy it is. First select the “Browser” button on your device. Then navigate to our website and enjoy eBooks and audio books on your Kobo Vox device. Downloading books from The World Public Library is easy and makes your Kobo device more powerful than ever before. Thanks for joining us. Until next time, this has been Maria for the World Public Library.
