RBDigital eAudiobooks Move to Libby

All eAudiobooks previously found on our RBDigital app have moved to our Libby app. What this means for you:

- If you had an eAudiobook checked out in RBDigital, it will be available through the remainder of its lending period in the RBdigital app. Current checkouts will not be moved to OverDrive. This will allow you to finish the book without disruption or risk of losing your place in the book.

- Holds on audiobooks through RBDigital will NOT transfer over to Libby. Patrons will need to manage their holds. They can export their Transaction History from the RBdigital websites by accessing My Account > Profiles. Users can place holds on those titles again in Libby.

- Other RBDigital resources - streaming video, eMagazines - will remain in the RBDigital app for the time being. 

If you have any questions, please fill out this digital support form. Thank you!
