Enki is a collection of downloadable e-books in the EPUB format. Enki was created by California libraries as an alternative to commercial services like 3M and Overdrive.  The large collection is currently dominated by e-books from small and independent publishers. 

Enki e-books may be browsed on the Enki website. To read e-books from the collection, you will need to access the Enki website from your reading device (e.g. iPad or Android tablet), check out a book, and then tell Enki to deliver the book to your reading app (e.g. Bluefire or Overdrive).  You will be prompted to create an Adobe ID if you don't already have one.  Please note: Enki will not work on e-ink Kindles (e.g. Paperwhite, Touch).

 Information and instructions for all supported devices
