Launch OverDrive and Libby (e-books and digital audiobooks)

OverDrive provides e-book and digital audiobook downloads.

To use e-books and digital audiobooks that you have downloaded, you will need to install some free software. To read e-books, you'll need Adobe Digital Editions and for audiobooks you will need OverDrive Media Console.

OverDrive’s Libby app lets you borrow e-books and audiobooks instantly, for free, using just the device in your hand.

You can download books and audiobooks for offline reading, or stream them to save space. And if you prefer reading on your Kindle or tablet, Libby can send your library books to it.

RBdigital provides digital audiobook downloads.

You can choose up to ten audiobooks at a time to download. After three weeks, the audiobooks are automatically 'returned' and will no longer be accessible.

If you have questions on how to use RBdigital, plenty of help available within the site.

Our collection of popular digital magazines includes both new and previous issues you can checkout and keep in your account for as long as you want.
