Important update - 1st April 2021:- Access to emagazines up to 30 April 2021 and beyond

Please note that we will be moving from the RBDigital emagazine service to Overdrive emagazines in the next few weeks. You can still access all your favourite emags via the RBD app until 30 April but after that you will need to either visit the Overdrive website or download the Libby app to access emags. We're sorry for the inconvenience but the good news is that apart from all the emags you currently enjoy there will be many more titles available from Overdrive.   

We will give you plenty of notice of when we're fully set up with the Overdrive website and Libby app. You will be contacted by us to let you know when you can move across to Overdrive and Libby.

If you would like to find out more about the Libby app please see:-
