Moving boxes of magazines

1000s of magazines are moving


Since 2012, Joondalup Libraries’ members have downloaded 195,142 of the world’s best digital magazines for free with RBdigital.

After 9 years, on 23 February 2021, this popular service will be merging with the world-wide eBook lending platform of OverDrive using the Libby app.

What happens next?

This change is scheduled to happen on 23 February. Updates will be announced in RBdigital when you can switch to Libby for magazines.

You can keep borrowing and reading magazines in RBdigital for now. Updates will be announced in RBdigital once you need to switch to Libby for these titles.

Many Library members may already have the Libby app installed. If so, you will notice magazines becoming available to download soon.
