RBDigital transition update for 9/23: An important message about digital audiobooks.

Overdrive has purchased RBDigital, and sometime this fall,  the WRL digital audiobook collection will migrate from the RBDigital platform to our Overdrive collection (the original 10/6 date was sent to us in error by Overdrive). After the transition, you will be able to access digital audiobooks on Overdrive’s Libby app, the same app you can use to access WRL’s ebook collection, as well as from WRL’s Overdrive website.

Please note: Holds on RBDigital titles will not be moved, but you may export your Transaction History from the RBdigital website by accessing My Account > Profiles (retrieve your transaction history). You can place holds on those titles again in Libby.

For the time being, you can continue to use the RBdigital app to access digital magazines and streaming video (including AcornTV).

Here are some details about the collection:

  • You can check out up to 15 titles at a time
  • Titles can be renewed up to 3 times
  • You can place up to 15 titles on hold
