digital magazines, ebooks and audiobooks in one app-Libby

If you're a fan of RBdigital magazines and OverDrive ebooks or audiobooks, we've got some great news for you. Starting February 18magazines will be available in Libby (by OverDrive), where you will be able to access ebooks, audiobooks, and magazines in the same app. As of April 1, you will no longer use the RBdigital landing page or app to read electronic magazines. Magazine checkouts will not count toward OverDrive checkout limits, and you will still have access to the full range of previously-available magazines (and more) in the Libby app.

PIN day at CPL is April 29!

On April 29, all CPL patrons will have PINs added to their patron accounts.

A PIN will be needed for any self-service transaction, for example, on our website or using self-check, but not for any person-to-person transaction at the Check Out Desk.

What is a PIN?

A Personal Identification Number (PIN) is a secondary form of authentication used to access your account that provides an extra layer of security.

How does a PIN help with security?

Using a PIN in conjunction with your library card number adds an extra layer of security to your account. If you lose your card or someone obtains your library card number, a PIN helps prevent unauthorized use of your library account.

Passwords or PINs (personal identification numbers) are the first step towards securing your online privacy. Learn more about protecting your identity with these reads.

For more information on internet privacy, see our series on privacy

Learn more about how the library is implementing PINs to protect your privacy.
