Online Magazines - RB Digital moving to Overdrive-Libby
The library's electronic magazines are moving from our RB Digital platform to Overdrive-Libby as of March 31st.
This means that you will no longer be able to use the RB Digital app to read magazines. Please download the Overdrive-Libby app soon and login with your library card number. The magazines are already available on this platform if you want to try them out!
Find the Libby App in your app store, or visit the Overdrive (New Hampshire Downloadable Books) website to borrow and read popular magazines today!
As always, if you need help getting started contact us to get one-on-one help from a Librarian (by phone, live chat, email, etc.)!
