Idea Exchange | December 10, 2021

If you are one of our loyal magazine readers, Idea Exchange has something special to offer. RBDigital has merged with Overdrive, to create an all in one platform for ebooks and magazines in a digital format. 

As of January, the RBDigital app will no longer be available for use. All RBDigital magazine titles are now available using Overdrive’s app or the new Libby app. Both are available to download on iOS or Android.

Overdrive has 3000 magazine titles from around the world, including current and back issues. Major magazines in languages other than English are available to check out using your Idea Exchange membership. Most exciting of all, downloading magazines will not count against your overall 20 item check out limit on Overdrive. So, borrow as many magazines as you like and download to read offline. To view the entire list of magazines, visit our downloadLibrary Overdrive site.

If you do not have the Overdrive or Libby app yet and would like help setting it up, contact any Idea Exchange location, or contact us via chat, and one of our staff will walk you through the process. Don’t have a membership yet, sign up for an online membership for access to all of our digital resources.

Magazines are better than ever.
