Residents can access thousands of resources online through Western Downs Libraries thanks to apps like RB Digital, Borrowbox and Freegal.

It’s official: people of the Western Downs love Audiobooks. Whether it’s farmers out in the field, commuting to work or students reading for school, our communities are listening to books on the go more than ever.

  • Making it easier than before to access audible content, Western Downs Libraries have jumped on board the new RB Digital app, which will merge user favourites Zinio and OneClickDigital into one user-friendly portal;
  • RB Digital will accompany the Libraries other eResources apps, Borrowbox and Freegal providing patrons with unlimited access to all the latest eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines and eMusic on offer;
  • The best part, it’s all free to Western Downs Libraries members! To find out how you can take advantage of our full list of eResources visit your local Library branch.

Western Downs Regional Council Spokesperson for Community and Cultural Development Councillor Kaye Maguire said Council is committed to helping our residents discover and access new ways to read, listen and learn.

“We know that sometimes it’s just not possible for our residents to get to their local library, whether it be due to distance or our busy lives, so we’re continually trying to make it easier for our communities to access Library resources,” she said.

“With RB Digital, Borrowbox and Freegal apps, you’ll have access to the latest book, magazine and music releases at the touch of a finger.

“So, if you’re time-poor, unable to make it into your branch during opening hours, or looking for a new way to access the library, our eResources could be exactly what you need.

“Check out the eLibrary tab on the Western Downs Libraries website for access to the full list of our eResources.”

Stop in to any Library branch and chat with the staff about how you can access RB Digital, Borrowbox and Freegal apps on your PC or smart device.
