Check Out the App for Digital Audiobooks @ West Bend Library
If you currently borrow RB Digital magazines (formerly Zinio) you will be pleased to know that RB Digital e-audiobooks are available as well. Monarch Library System has recently added over 28,000 audiobooks to go along with the magazine collection. There are audiobooks available for young adult readers, for children and beginning readers, as well as adults.
RB Digital can be found on the West Bend Library website (www.westbendlibrary.org) under “Library Services” and then “Online Resources and Databases.” If you are a first time user, select the “Register” link in the upper-right-hand corner of the screen. Then, fill in the requested information and then enter a user name without any spaces. Passwords must be at least four characters long and can contain both numbers and letters. Passwords are case sensitive but usernames are not.
You can download mobile apps for Apple products, Android devices, and Kindle Fires, whereas the RB Digital Media Manager is the easiest way to download, transfer, and manage audio titles on your laptop or computer. At the bottom of the RB Digital home page are links for all apps for mobile devices or go to the app store on your device and search RB Digital. You will find a short tutorial, troubleshooting information, and a support page with contact information there as well. RB Digital can be used on as many devices as you like, but titles downloaded to specific devices stay on those devices. Titles will be removed from your device when the title expires or is returned by you.
Listening to books is on the rise and it's never been easier to access wonderful media from our library's collections. Give it a try today! For questions, please call the West Bend Library’s reference desk at 262.335.5152.
