This is no longer required in the US as libraries now support direct downloading for azw format.

I suggest using your PC instead of your device to download/loan the book so that you can choose to pick the Kindle Version instead of the epub version as many times I have done it from my Kindle Fire and it only shows the option to use the ePub version which will only work on my Kindle Fire (glossy screen not good for reading) but if you do it from the PC you can get the file and then use Mange my Kindle on the Amazon site to send it to my Kindle Touch (eInk screen which is much better on the eyes when reading)

Your results may vary.

Do you HONESTLY think that the original poster cares about the answer after three and a half years?

Will not allow me to open...I have downloaded the acsm and ADE will not allow..is there any way I can get the files to my new kindle?

What do you mean by "will not allow me to open"? What error message do you get when you double click the ACSM file in Windows Explorer?

Join a library that has ebooks to check out. Download their ebook reader program. Download calibre. Download a patch for it called tools_v2.4, install the ineptepub_plug.py

When you download the book from the library it comes on your desktop as an acsm file double click on that and it loads it into your Adobe Digital Editions, you will see the cover of the book in that program.

Next you have to find the actual .ebook (c:users>name of computer>my documents>my digital editions. Then I copied and pasted the epub file to my desktop. Drag it into calibre to translate to .mobi.

Then you email the .mobi book to your kindle address (name@kindle.com). I had a couple of issues mailing it at the beginning so I plugged in the USB cable and copied the .mobi book directly to the Kindle (it sees it as a hard drive).

Now I can read the books I checked out of the library on my Kindle! I kept typing in the explorer bar questions on how to do this and found different ideas and posts to try things.
Cheers lovely. Can stop ripping my hair out now - lol
