The Library subscribes to a variety of downloadable and streaming content services, including: eBooks, eAudiobooks, music, movies, television, eMagazines and eNewspapers. Our eMedia help pages have the information you'll need to get set up.

RBdigital eBooks and eAudiobooks have moved to Overdrive!

undefinedOverDrive and RBdigital have merged! On August 17, 2020, all RBdigital eBooks and eAudiobooks moved into OverDrive/Libby. 

If you already had an eBook or eAudiobook borrowed from RBdigital before the move it will continue to be available in the RBdigital app for you until the checkout expires.

Unfortunately, RBdigital holds did not move over with the books. Please request those titles again once they appear in OverDrive/Libby. We apologise for the inconvenience.

We recommend OverDrive's Libby app as the best eBook and eAudiobook experience.

RBdigital's eMagazines will remain with RBdigital for now and will merge into OverDrive at a later date.

Quick Links to eBooks Services

 

The following are online (or "browser-based") eBooks. Once you've logged in with your library card, you can access the full text of an eBook and read it on a computer screen or mobile device (e.g., iPhone, iPad, Android tablet). However, some devices may require Adobe Flash player to read the book and might not work. 

OverDrive eBooks

With an OverDrive account, you get access to:

  • Over 21,000 eBooks, all completely free!
  • 24/7 downloads on your computer, smartphone or tablet
  • Popular, bestselling titles and authors, available for 7, 14, or 21-days loans
