RBdigital Audiobooks - converting to Overdrive/Libby

Overdrive has acquired RBdigital and will be importing the RBdigital titles into the Overdrive collection in the Fall of 2020.

The Appleton Public Library will be moving our digital ebooks and audiobooks from RBdigital to the Libby app as part of our OverDrive collection. You will continue to be able to browse, borrow, and enjoy all the same great ebooks and audiobooks you loved in the RBdigital app, now available in Libby.

If you have already been enjoying the Libby app, there will be no change, other than you may notice even more great titles available for you to borrow.

Transition from RBdigital

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. Holds will not be moved, but you may export your Transaction History from the RBdigital websites by accessing My Account > Profiles. You can place holds on those titles again in Libby.

RBdigital Audiobooks provides access to thousands of downloadable audiobook titles published by Recorded Books. For most all titles, there will be no waiting: if you see it, you can get it. The exception to this are "Coming Soon" titles, and "Single Use" titles. "Coming Soon" titles are audiobooks that aren't yet released to the platform, but are scheduled to soon be available per an agreed upon release date with the publisher. "Single Use" titles are additional titles APL purchases that only allow one user at a time; in those cases, you will need to place a Hold to be added to the list.
