Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) uses ACSM files to download ebooks. When you purchase an eBook, you receive an ACSM file. You open the ACSM file in Adobe Digital Editions, and it then downloads the eBook. The ACSM contains an expiry time, and if you don't download the book within that token expiry time, you can't download the eBook.
To fix this issue, download the book again from your library website or bookstore. When you download the ACSM file, be sure to open it right away so you can download your selection without any errors.
