Goodbye RBdigital

Posted on

On May 15, 2021, RBdigital will no longer offer its streaming services to libraries. The RBdigital app/website will retire on May 20, 2021.

How does this affect you?

Although The Great Courses will no longer be available from RBdigital, you can continue to enjoy this marvelous resource through Kanopy, a streaming service now offered by Fauquier Public Library. AcornTV fans can continue to get their British TV and film fix via the library’s DVD collection, which includes popular series like Vera, Call the Midwife and Doc Martin.

What is Kanopy?

Kanopy is a free streaming service available to Fauquier Public Library cardholders, offering rich entertainment for the entire family including:

  • 30,000 enriching movies, many exclusive to Kanopy
  • The Great Courses
  • Kanopy Kids

Kanopy is available to stream anytime and anywhere, from desktop to TV to tablet. It’s easy to use and completely ad-free!

Discontinuation of the RBdigital streaming services follows the December 2020 acquisition of RBdigital by Overdrive, an online e-Book and e-Audio vendor. Fauquier Public Library’s collection of e-Books and e-Audiobooks is available from the Overdrive Blue Ridge Download Consortium.

To access all of the Library’s electronic resources, including e-Books, e-Audiobooks, e-Magazines and online research databases, visit our e-media page.
