Audiobooks & Magazines

Audiobooks

Browse and check out audiobooks

Log in to RBdigital account using your email and password.

Click on a book cover image for audio samples, to checkout, or to place a hold. Checkout period is 3 weeks and titles can be renewed up to 3 times if there are not customer holds on the title.

Search to check out or place holds

Place a hold on an audiobook or title with the hold button when another patron has the title checked out or if you have reached the maximum number of checkouts (12 per customer). RBdigital will automatically check out the item once available, and notify via email.

Click on the magnifying glass in the upper-right corner of the screen and type in search terms by Keyword, Title, Author, and Narrator, and click the search button. Use the Advanced Search fields to perform a detailed search and find only audiobooks that are available now.

Use RBdigital Media Manager to listen on desktop

Audiobooks on desktop require RBdigital Media Manager, which is available for Mac and Windows operating systems. Clicking on the link will open a dialog box with an .exe file to run on your computer, shown below.

Once installed on the computer and registered with username and password, newly checked-out titles will open directly with the software. To continue reading a downloaded audiobook, access through the Media Manager rather than through the RBdigital webpage. If you are experiencing issues, you may need to download and install the newest version.
