Online Resources

RBdigital has recently been purchased by OverDrive and our subscription to RBdigital eAudio has now ended. Current users are now unable to login to RBdigital to borrow eAudio titles, however the good news is that the RBdigital catalogue is being integrated with OverDrive’s already extensive library of eBooks and audio titles.

You will continue to be able to browse, borrow, and enjoy all the same great eAudiobooks you loved in the RBdigital app, now available in OverDrive’s Libby app. For those who have not yet tried the Libby app, all you need to get started is your library card number and library password. The Libby app is easy to use and will guide you through the setup process and get you connected to our library in just a few minutes. You can find in-app support, or visit the Help site for assistance.
