Great audiobooks available on RB Digital

We have some great new audiobooks available from RB digital Audiobooks!!  We now have access to A Better Man by Louise Penny, TheTestaments by Margaret Atwood and The Institute by Stephen King.  So while these are one copy/one user audios (not “always available”), they are much more available because they are only for OUR PATRONS, not the whole state!  So on Overdrive/Libby the wait for A Better Man is presently about 20 weeks and the RB Digital one is available NOW - as I write this anyway!
Here's all you need to get started: the RB digital app (for iOS, Android or Kindle Fire) and your 14 digit library card number to create an account.  Let us know if you have any questions!

Online Resources

We wanted to let you know that we have changed how to access our Online Resources, including Consumer Reports (see all of our Online Resources on this page). All of our resources now use your 14 digit library card number to access each service. If you do not have a 14 digit library card number (or don't know if you do, since you haven't seen your library card in years!), call or stop by the library and we'll fix that.
