RBdigital eMagazines move to OverDrive February 4

Forsyth County Public Library will move its collection of RBdigital eMagazines to its OverDrive collection on Thursday, February 4, 2021. 

Download OverDrive's Libby app and start reading eBooks, eMagazines, and eAudiobooks.

This change comes as a result of OverDrive acquiring RBmedia’s library business, RBdigital, in North America, UK, and Australia in 2020. eMagazines in the RBdigital collection will be transferred to OverDrive and patrons will continue to be able to browse, borrow, and enjoy even more eMagazines in OverDrive’s Libby app.

Transition from RBdigital

FCPL patrons may access RBdigital eMagazines, along with hundreds of new eMagazines, in the library’s OverDrive website or in the Libby app beginning February 4, 2021. 

Access to RBdigital eMagazines in the RBdigital app will end on March 31, 2021.
