IMPORTANT NOTIFICATION

RBdigital Platform

eAudiobooks, eMagazines and eBooks previously available through RBdigital have now moved to the Libby app.

We won’t be closing-down RBdigital straight away: it’s going to remain available for a few weeks, so after the move you’ll still be able to finish anything that you’ve already borrowed, but we recommend that you use Libby for anything new as soon as it’s live – and we’ll send you a reminder once it is.

None of the other services that your Library provides are affected by this change.

We hope you’ve enjoyed using RBdigital and that you enjoy using Libby even more to help you make the most of what your Library has to offer.

Access to these titles in RBdigital will end on or before April 30, 2021.
