OverDrive's new app - Libby

Libby is a brand new app from OverDrive, one of our subscription eBook lenders. According to OverDrive:
"We're trying to simplify and bring joy to every aspect of digital borrowing and reading. If you love it, you can use it instead of the OverDrive app. If you don't love it yet, feel free to keep using the OverDrive app, but check in on Libby from time to time — we're adding features and squashing bugs every day."

OneClickDigital & Zinio for Libraries App Merge

Our digital magazine subscription lending service Zinio and one of our eAudiobook providers OneClickDigital have merged apps to provide a one stop shop for these free digital media downloads! If you update the OneClickDigital app you'll see it is now called RBdigital. Here you'll find tabs for both audiobooks and magazines. You are free to delete the old Zinio app at this point. If you use these services via your browser on PC or Mac you will continue to access the sites separately, but will notice the sites have changed over to the new RBdigital name. You can always learn more about all our digital downloads at www.tempe.gov/DigitalLibrary
