How do I get started with Freading?

  1. First, you need a Connecticut library card (from your hometown library) that’s been registered with HCH Library
  2. Then, you need an Adobe ID. You might already have one that you created for other purposes. If you’re coming in to have us help you set up (and we hope you do!), bring this info with you if you have it.
  3. Finally, you’ll need a device to read the eBook. This can include a phone, a tablet, or a laptop or desktop computer.
