Magazines - Libby App in a browser:

Magazines can be checked out for 7 or 21 days and can be renewed.  Digital magazines have no wait lists or holds and do not count towards your 10 checkout limit.  

The magazines can be best accessed through the Libby app or Libby app in a browser. Readers can browse lists of magazines within the app and search to find available titles.

If you aren't able to use the Libby App on your device (such as a Kindle Fire), you can access the Libby app in any browser at  You can also use the original OverDrive app or our OverDrive website instead. These alternatives have the same titles as Libby, but offer slightly different features and device compatibility.  The article view feature is only available in Libby.

What happened to the magazines we had?
OverDrive purchased RBdigital so the magazines have moved to OverDrive.

Is there a way to access magazine issues that were previously borrowed via RBdigital?
Yes.
