On August 10,  RBdigital will  turn off access to ebook and audiobook content in the RBdigital app as titles are moved to OverDrive. During that time (approximately 4 hours, but could take up to 24 hours for titles to fully populate), patrons will not have access to the RBdigital titles. A message will be posted in the RBdigital app. After the transfer RBdigital patrons will be redirected to OverDrive.
