NEW: RBdigital magazines will be transferred to the Libby app on January 28.

JCPL will be moving our digital magazines from RBdigital to the Libby app on Thursday, January 28. You will continue to be able to browse, borrow, and enjoy all the same great magazines from ZINIO you loved in the RBdigital app, now available in Libby from OverDrive. The transfer process may take a few hours and once complete, it could take up to 24 hours for all titles to fully populate.

RBdigital audiobooks are now available in the Libby app through Overdrive

OverDrive has acquired Recorded Books/RBdigital, so the JCPL RBdigital audiobook collection have been migrated to OverDrive. You will continue to be able to browse, borrow, and enjoy all the same great audiobooks you loved in the RBdigital app using the Libby app.
