Online Resources News

Your library is continuously responding to the increased demand for online services during this period of gradual reopening in our community, continued self-isolation, and physical distancing to help contain the spread of COVID-19 for all our safety.

We need your help to keep our digital collections in motion. When you finish reading an eBook, please don’t wait until its due date. Please return it, so that others may enjoy it, too. Thank you.

Acorn TV -  Changes are coming | May 14

Acorn TV will be leaving RB Digital on May 14 and moving to its new home on OverDrive, where library members already can borrow from our large and always growing collection of eBooks, eAudiobooks, and digital magazines. The RB Digital app will permanently retire on May 20, 2021. Right now, we are waiting to learn more from OverDrive about how access to Acorn TV will work. Please stay tuned here for more information.
