RBdigital

RBdigital’s eBooks and eAudiobooks have been transitioned into Overdrive. Access the familiar RBdigital content using the Libby app and selecting “Georgia Download Destination” as your library. You’ll log in following the steps below for Overdrive. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Magazines will remain available on RBdigital for a short period before being transitioned to the Overdrive app. Please stay tuned for more information.

OverDrive

Click here to go to the OverDrive website. Requires a NGRL library card and account. Free eBooks.

OverDrive provides access to hundreds of eBooks and eAudiobooks through a mobile app or through a computer. Your username is your NGRL library card number (no spaces) and your password is the PIN created when you signed up for your library card. If you don’t remember your PIN, drop by the library to get a new one.

OverDrive eBooks and eAudiobooks can be checked out for up to 14 days with one renewal. Renewals will not be available if an item has a hold. You can have up to five items out at a time, and items will automatically return on their due date. Library cards must say Northwest Georgia Regional Library System on them and cannot be expired.

Georgia Download Destination (GADD)

NGRL participates in large consortium with other libraries, enabling everyone to have access to more content at lower prices called Georgia Download Destination. There are more than 20,000 eBooks and eAudiobooks available through GADD. To access it, you must choose “Georgia Download Destination” as the library when signing up for Libby or use https://gadd.overdrive.com. Advantage titles mentioned below should also be available, but only to those with library cards beginning in 21038.

Northwest Georgia Regional Library System (Advantage Collection)

You may also add an additional library and choose “Northwest Georgia Regional Library System” or use https://ngrls.overdrive.com to access titles that are exclusively available to NGRL patrons. Those titles will have shorter holds and may be easier to check out and requests for additional purchases will likely appear in this collection. GADD titles will not be visible when searching under this library.
