RBdigital e-books & audiobooks now available in the Libby app!
Fauquier Public Library will be moving our digital e-books and audiobooks from the RBdigital platform to the OverDrive Blue Ridge Download Consortium (BRDC) collection effective December 2, 2020. You will continue to be able to browse, borrow, and enjoy all the same great e-books and audiobooks you loved in the RBdigital app, but now they will be available in the award-winning Libby app.
If you have already been enjoying the OverDrive Blue Ridge Download Consortium (and Libby), there will be no change, other than you may notice even more great titles available for you to borrow.
How does this transition affect you?
If you currently have a book checked out in the RBdigital app, it will be available through the remainder of the lending period, so you can finish your title without disruption or risk of losing your place in the book.
- Your holds will NOT be moved, but you may export your Transaction History from the library’s RBdigital website by accessing My Account > Profiles. You can then place holds on those titles again in via logging in to the BRDC site or through the Libby app.
- You can continue to use the library’s RBdigital site/app to access magazines, entertainment and educational content, including the Great Courses and AcornTV.
