On December 17, our subscription to RBdigital ends. This affects downloadable audiobooks and magazines on the RBdigital platform, and streaming movies on IndieFLIX. You'll find even more digital content in our other platforms that specialize in these formats. If you don't know about them already, keep reading to learn about what you can find in Overdrive, Pressreader and Kanopy!

Listen to audiobooks (and read e-books) from OverDrive

Audiobooks in RBdigital are now in our single audiobook and e-book collection: OverDrive. You don't have to use two platforms or apps anymore, so you can focus on browsing over 24,000 downloadable audiobooks and e-books, all in one place. There's audiobooks just for teens and kids, too!

And with all audiobooks and e-books from a single platform, you can now track all of your digital checkouts with everything else on your library account. Borrow up to ten digital titles and place up to 20 digital titles on hold.

Due to licensing, BPL's OverDrive collection is available to Burnaby residents only. If you live outside of Burnaby, contact your home library for help with borrowing downloadable audiobooks and e-books.

Browse online magazines (and newspapers) with PressReader

Flip and scroll through an online magazine that looks identical to the print version in PressReader. Browse familiar titles found on RBdigital and discover new favourites specializing in business and current events, fashion, health and fitness, home and garden and more! Choose from over 4,000 magazines and 2,000 newspapers, in over 60 languages from 100 countries. Read online on your computer or download up to ten titles on the PressReader app.

Watch online movies with Kanopy

It includes content in over 100 languages. There's movies for everyone, including a collection just for kids. Kanopy can be enjoyed on your TV, mobile phone, tablet or online. Due to licensing, BPL's Kanopy subscription is available to Burnaby residents only.
