Important News about RBDigital

RBdigital was recently acquired by the digital platform OverDrive. On September 9, the digital ebooks and audiobooks from our RBdigital collection were migrated into our OverDrive collection.

Now, all of our digital books will be accessible through both the Libby and OverDrive apps. (Libby is the more popular app, but in some devices where it is not available, Overdrive works fine.)

If you had a book checked out in RBdigital prior to the migration, you will be able to continue reading or listening to your book until that item’s borrowing period ends. However, Overdrive was unable to transfer RBdigital hold queues into its platform. If you had items on hold in RBdigital that you still want to read, please place a new hold in Overdrive.

The library began purchasing upcoming releases through Overdrive in August. Copies purchased by SPPL will only be available to our resident cardholders, and wait-times will not be as long as typically experienced in Libby.

This transition relates only to ebooks and audiobooks. The RBdigital platform will continue to host our video streaming services.


E-books and E-Audiobooks

  • Get started on the Overdrive website, or with the Libby and OverDrive apps. (Libby is more user-friendly, but Overdrive works fine and is the only option on some devices.)
  • Login with your library barcode and PIN.
  • From the Overdrive website, you can search, borrow and read online, but you will need an app to download books.
