To install a pattern library in Adobe Illustrator, you can follow these steps:

Window menu > Swatches > In swatches window: Click top right corner button >
Open Swatch Library > Other Library... > Choose the file you've downloaded > 
Click Open (Hatches will appear in a separate window)

Here is a little bit more detailed way:

  1. Download the pattern library file in a compatible format, such as AI, EPS, or SVG.

  2. Open Adobe Illustrator and create a new document or open an existing one.

  3. Go to the "Swatches" panel, which can be found under the "Window" menu.

  4. Click on the "Swatch Libraries" icon at the bottom of the panel and select "Other Library" from the dropdown menu.

  5. Navigate to the location where you saved the pattern library file and select it.

  6. The pattern library will then appear in the "Swatches" panel as a new swatch group.

  7. To use a pattern from the library, simply select the object you want to fill, click on the pattern swatch you want to use, and the object will be filled with that pattern.

File format: Adobe Illustrator Ai.
