How to read public library ebook in Kindle

When you borrow a ebook from public Library, what you are really downloading is an .acsm file. There is a lot of confusion about this file type as the .acsm is not your actual eBook. It is just a link to your eBook that allows a program like Digital Editions to download the actual book, When Digital Editions sees the .acsm file it will automatically download the PDF or ePUB file, which is the actual eBook, so you only remove drm from epub/pdf file, not from .acsm file.
