Accessing digital audiobooks is about to get even easier!
SPL will be moving our digital audiobooks from RBdigital to the Libby/Overdrive apps as part of our OverDrive collection on September 16, 2020. After September 16, you will continue to be able to enjoy all the same great audiobooks you loved in the RBdigital app but now browse and borrow through Libby or Overdrive.
What does this mean for you?
- If you have already been enjoying the Libby or Overdrive app, there will be no change, other than you may notice even more great titles available for you to borrow.
- If you currently have an audio book checked out in the RBdigital app, it will be available in the app through the remainder of the lending period, so you can finish your title without disruption or risk of losing your place in the book. Current checkouts will not transfer to Libby/Overdrive.
- Checkout history and wishlists will not transfer to Libby/Overdrive; however, you can export your Transaction History from the RBdigital websites by accessing My Account > Profiles and use the information to recreate lists in Libby using Tags.
Libby: Easy Set Up, Easy Use
SPL is proud to offer a wide selection of digital titles for you to access anytime, anywhere through Libby, the one-tap reading app.* All you need to get started is your library card number and PIN (personal identification number). Download the app from your app store and follow the steps on screen to get connected to our library in just minutes. If you need assistance, visit the Libby Help site or give us a call.
*Libby and OverDrive are two different apps made by Overdrive. Both offer the same library content. Which app you choose is user preference; we encourage patrons to try Libby if they are seeking the simplest user experience.
