Magazine and Newspaper FAQs

  • RBdigital, one of our eAudiobook and eMagazine providers, was acquired by OverDrive, another digital book vendor. That means that all the content that you’ve come to enjoy through RBdigital is now available through the Libby and OverDrive apps instead of the RBdigital apps. The transition timeline for eMagazines was Jan. 28, 2021. Thanks for your patience and understanding during this change. Please contact  digitalbooks@cincinnatilibrary.org  or chat with us if you have any comments or questions.
  • Yes, whether you're on your phone, tablet, eReader, or even TV, there's a Library app to help make digital borrowing quicker and easier.

    Please note, OverDrive offers two apps, OverDrive and Libby. Libby was created to offer a more user-friendly experience. Both apps access the same digital collection.
