Change to Audiobook/eMagazines service - issue with Libby app is now fixed

Apologies to our customers who have been trying to access our new service. The issue has been resolved with our supplier. 

Find out more about the switch to Libby

Audiobooks previously available through RBdigital have moved to the library’s OverDrive service and available through the Libby app. OverDrive, the leading digital reading platform for libraries worldwide and creator of the Libby app, recently acquired RBdigital. Ebooks checked out in the RBdigital app will be available through the remainder of the lending period, so readers can finish the title without disruption. Holds will not be moved, but library patrons may export their Transaction History from the RBdigital app then borrow or place holds on those titles again in Libby. 

You can still use our BorrowBox and Ulverscroft service for eAudio books and PressReader for eNewspapers and eMagazines - click here to visit the eReading page and find links to these alternative services.
