RBdigital magazines have moved to Libby, by OverDrive.

Using the Libby app you can continue to borrow and enjoy all the same magazines you loved in RBdigital and have access to over 3,000 titles with up to 3 years of back issues (where available).

Just like in RBdigital, magazines will be available for immediate issue with no waiting lists.

• Magazines will have a loan period of 21 days. After this time the loan will automatically expire and they will be returned.

• You can continue to renew your magazine again at any time.

• There will be no caps to the maximum number of magazines that can be checked out at once.

• Magazine checkouts will not count against OverDrive ebook and audiobook checkout limits.

Current magazines checked out in RBdigital will not transfer to your Libby/OverDrive account. You can keep your back issues of magazines you borrowed through RBdigital by creating a ZINIO account using the same email address you used with RBdigital.

Once registered, your previously borrowed magazines will be available in your Zinio Account.

They won’t be closing-down RBdigital straight away. It’s going to remain available until the 31st of March, so after the move you’ll still be able to finish anything that you’ve already borrowed, but we recommend that you use the Libby app for anything new.

If you already use our Library’s OverDrive service, or Libby then you don’t need to do anything else, but if you haven’t used them before then click here to download the Libby app. All you need is a Library card and PIN.
