PLEASE NOTE: RBdigital was purchased by OverDrive in 2020, and their content has been transferred to OverDrive. You will be able to access the magazines in the RBdigital app until March 31, 2021. We recommend installing the Libby or OverDrive apps well before that date. To learn more about the Libby and OverDrive apps, click here. For a step-by-step illustrated guide to installing the apps, click here for Libby and click here for OverDrive.

RBdigital offers thousands of magazine subscriptions that can be viewed on your computer or taken on the go with the RBdigital app for your smart device.

There is no limit to the number of magazines a patron may check out at one time, and they have no due date. Keep them as long as you like!
