RBdigital Leaving October 1st

Beginning on October 1, 2020, Andover Public Library’s RBdigital eaudiobook library will transfer to the Sunflower eLibrary and the Overdrive/Libby apps. At that time, our RBdigital eaudiobooks will no longer be available on the RBdigital app. This change comes as a result of OverDrive acquiring RBdigital in North America, UK, and Australia earlier this year.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What happens if I have an RBdigital eaudiobook currently checked out?

Patrons who currently have an RBdigital eaudiobook will be able to continue to listen to the eaudiobook in the RBdigital app through the remainder of the lending period.

What happens to my RBdigital holds and wishlist?

We are not able to move holds on RBdigital eaudiobooks to Overdrive/Libby. Patrons may view their holds and wishlists from the My Account section of the RBdigital app, then place new holds on those titles and recreate your wishlist in Libby.

How can I learn how to use the Sunflower eLibrary and the Libby app?

Libby will guide you through the setup process and get you connected to your library in just a few minutes. You can also visit our Sunflower eLibrary and Libby user guides.

 

What if I use RBdigital through the State Library of Kansas?

The State Library of Kansas’ eaudiobook collection is not yet moving and will remain active and accessible through RBdigital. We do not have a date at this time for when the State Library of Kansas will end using RBdigital. For more information on the State Library of Kansas and RBdigital, click here or contact the State Library of Kansas by calling 785-296-3296.

Library Reopening Update

The Library will reopen for limited services beginning Monday, June 15th. Patrons are encouraged to wear masks, practice safe social distancing, keep their visits to the library brief, and avoid gathering in large groups. Patrons may come to the library to browse the shelves, check out library materials, send faxes, and make copies. The computer lab, study rooms, library seating areas, and the children’s toys and puzzles will be unavailable. If you or your family is unwell, we ask that you stay home; we are happy to help you on the phone with renewals, holds, and accessing our digital services.

Our digital services will remain available to all patrons with ebooks and eaudiobooks on Libby, Sunflower eLibrary, and RB Digital. Staff are happy to help patrons navigate these services by phone or in person.

Holds pickup will remain in the lobby and our book drop remains open for returns. We will continue to quarantine returned library materials for three days before checking them back in and returning them to the shelves.

Passport services will resume on Monday, June 22nd, by appointment only. Appointments may be made by calling the Library at 558-3500 and must be made 24 hours in advance.

Story times will continue on Facebook Live and Summer Reading prize pickups will move from the gallery to inside the library.

During our closure, we have worked hard to implement procedures that will keep our staff and community safe. We installed protective barriers at the circulation and passport desks for safety. Self-checkout will continue to be available and a rigorous cleaning schedule is in place for all areas of the library. Staff will wear masks when not behind protective barriers.

We will continue to be open our regular library hours: 9:00 am -8:00 pm Monday-Thursday, 9:00 am -5:00 pm Friday, and 9:00 am -3:00 pm Saturday.

Please let us know if you have any questions about our reopening.
