Washoe County Library System is moving our digital magazines from RBdigital to the Libby app. You will continue to be able to browse, borrow, and enjoy all the same great magazines you loved in the RBdigital app, now available in Libby.
In addition to all the magazines from our RBdigital collection, we will continue to offer a wide selection of ebook and audiobook titles through the Libby app. So from now on, you won't need to use multiple apps for your digital check-outs.
If you currently have magazines checked out in the RBdigital app, they will be available through the remainder of the lending period, so you can finish them without disruption.
All you need to get started in Libby is your device, your library card number, and your PIN.
