NGRL – RBDigital & Georgia Download Destination (GADD)

Northwest Georgia Regional Library System has joined the Georgia Download Destination group and now offers eBooks, eAudiobooks, and eMagazines through the RBDigital website and app

What are some of the things that come to your mind when you hear the term, “library book”? Probably bound books sitting on a shelf, am I right? Maybe you see a book that’s a little worn from years of love. You can probably imagine a comforting scent when it’s opened up. Possibly, you can feel the book’s texture in your hands. What if I told you there was an entire smorgasbord of books available at the library just waiting for you to discover them… but they aren’t visible on our shelves? That they never obtain any wear and tear, they don’t have an aroma, and you can’t physically touch them?

It’s not magic folks, it’s our digital collection! Our libraries provide free access to tons of eBooks, eAudiobooks, and eMagazines through RBDigital. It’s simple, it’s free and all you need is your library card.

The first step to check out these awesome downloadable materials is to create an account with RBDigital. This step can’t be done through the app, so you will need to use the browser on your computer, tablet or phone. Visit ngrl.rbdigital.com and head to the Register section. After you’ve filled in the blanks and submitted your information, you’re ready to download the free RBDigital app on any of your personal devices. Once you’re in the app, you will log in to your account using the username and password you created.

Browsing our over 7,000 titles could not be more simple in this user-friendly app. You will be surprised how many popular eBooks, eAudiobooks, and eMagazines exist through RBDigital!
Our staff wants you to enjoy and feel comfortable using this technology. We understand that exploring a new avenue to information can be a bit overwhelming sometimes. If you would like assistance with RBDigital, please stop by any of our branches. We will be happy to assist you with any questions you may have!
