Digital audiobooks with RBdigital

Library members can choose from over 1,000 audio books to download for free to a PC or smartphone using RBdigital. With broadband access and your library card number you can download and play audiobooks on your computer, or transfer them to your (.wma compatible) MP3 player or other device.

There is no hire charge for this service and you can choose and download up to 10 audiobooks, which are on loan to you for three weeks. If you finish them early you can return them by logging into your account. After three weeks they are returned automatically.

Some titles can only be borrowed by one person at a time, just like a printed book borrowed from the library. Others titles are unlimited and will always be available.
