Library E-books and E-Audiobooks Announcement

The library is proud to announce a new partnership with RBDigital, a vendor of e-books, e-audiobooks, and e-magazines.

Why the switch? RBDigital offers us the ability to provide you with not only e-books and e-audiobooks, but also e-magazines and e-audiobooks with no holds or waiting periods. We will also utilize RBDigital’s competitive pricing to offer more content for our patrons.

When will the change take effect? Our new contract begins February 6th, 2018.

What will happen to my holds and wish list? We will be pausing the option to place holds beginning January 1st, 2018 and restarting this option when our new contract begins February 6th. You may want to make a printed copy of your wish list so you can recreate it on the new platform.

Which patrons will be affected by this switch? Starting February 6th, patrons will be directed to the RBDigital platform, which will offer a similar experience to the existing platform. Users who read or listen on desktop computers, laptops, mobile devices, and tablets will continue to have the ability to download and enjoy these materials. Users who read e-books on a Kindle Paperwhite will need to contact RBDigital’s helpline for assistance, due to Amazon’s proprietary e-book format.
