Accessing Digital Books, Audiobooks, Newspapers, and Magazines

With just your library card, you can access thousands of digital books, audiobooks, newspapers, and magazines that aren't available for free any place but libraries. This is because premium downloading and streaming services typically require a subscription, but the Library subscribes, so you don't have to! Happy reading and listening!

Popular eBooks & eAudiobooks


Libby is the preferred app for accessing Overdrive eBooks and eAudiobooks.

Access eBooks with your library card through Overdrive. 

Popular eAudiobooks, eMagazines & Classic eBooks


RBdigital offers the best in downloadable audiobooks, magazines, and classic books.

  • Download popular fiction and nonfiction audiobooks, magazines, and classic books for children, teens, and adults.
  • Unlimited simultaneous access -- this means NO holds or waitlists necessary, NO waiting.  If it's in the catalog, it's available for download!
  • Mobile app available for easy borrowing and reading on the go!
  • Best for:  Readers who prefer audiobooks and magazines, and those who read classic novels. 
  • Formerly known as OneClickDigital (eBooks and eAudiobooks) and Zinio for Libraries (eMagazines). RBdigital has consolidated the two services under one masthead. The Zinio for Libraries app has been discontinued. If you have not already done so, you will need to download the RBdigital app on your mobile device to access magazines. If you don't have an RBDigital eBooks account, you will need to create one to access both books AND magazines.
  • If you had a OneClickDigital or Zinio account and access it from a device other than a computer or laptop, you will be prompted to download the new RBdigital app when you log in. Once downloaded, your transition should be seamless and you will be able to use all RBdigital services in one app. Download the instructions for using all services in one app, or watch a 1-minute video to see how to use the app.
  • To download the RBdigital app, please visit: 
  • Website access is separate for audiobooks/books and magazines. (Links below.) 
  • Access or create my free RBdigital account for downloadable audiobooks, magazines, and books.
