What happened to RBdigital? 

Due to a change in ownership of the RBdigital Media Company, the unlimited subscriptions model for lending digital audiobooks and magazines is no longer being offered for library licensing. In addition, the new owners announced the intent to discontinue the RBDigital apps and website. Digital eAudiobook access on RBdigital ended on March 15, 2021. Digital magazine access ended on March 31, 2021.

While we do not yet have a replacement platform for digital magazine access, the Illinois Heartland Library System, of which Hayner Library is a member, is in talks with companies who may provide a comparable consortia lending model, which is what we are losing in RBdigital. Consortia lending models allow member libraries to offer a robust collection of titles at a cost we can afford.

We regret the loss of the RBdigital platform, but we hope to have a solution in the coming months. We will publicize any developments on our website and Facebook page and in future editions of our newsletter.
