Borrow eAudiobooks

Choose from over 3,000 digital audiobooks to listen to for free on your electronic device.

Library members can borrow up to 20 electronic audiobooks at a time from RBdigital and listen to them on their computer, smartphone, tablet or portable music player.

Most titles have unlimited availability with no waiting lists, though a few titles may need to be reserved if they are already on loan. You will receive an email once your reservation is available.

Loans expire automatically after 21 days so there are no late charges to worry about.
