How many eAudiobooks can I have?

You can borrow up to four eAudiobooks at a time. You select a loan period between 1 and 21 days, and it is removed from your account/device automatically. In your app settings you can set it to auto-download titles you select, and whether to only use a Wi-Fi connection (to avoid mobile data charges).

Remember there is free public Wi-Fi at all of our branch libraries to download your eAudiobooks. You can also listen online on the RB Digital website.

You can download eAudiobooks and eMagazines using the same account, so you only need to set up one account to be able to access both.

Happy listening!
