Harris County Public Library will be moving our eAudiobooks from RBdigital to the Libby app as part of our OverDrive collection on 8/27/2020.
Starting the morning of 8/27 (around 8:00 AM ET), access to eAudiobook content in the RBdigital collection will be turned off as the titles are moved to OverDrive. During that time (approximately 4 hours, but could take up to 24 hours for titles to fully populate), we will not have access to the RBdigital titles.
Once the transition is complete, you will continue to be able to browse, borrow, and enjoy all the same great eAudiobooks you loved in the RBdigital app, now available in Libby. If you have already been enjoying the Libby app, there will be no change, other than you may notice even more great titles available for you to borrow.
Transition from RBdigital
If you currently have a book checked out in the RBdigital app, it will be available through the remainder of the lending period, so you can finish your title without disruption or risk of losing your place in the book. Unfortunately, it’s not possible for holds to be moved, but you may export your Transaction History from the Profiles section of the RBdigital website (From the menu select "My Account", then "Profiles", then scroll down to find "Export My Transaction History") or view/screenshot them w/in the RBdigital app. You can place holds on those titles again in Libby once they've been moved over to the Overdrive collection.
