The app and the website have a very similar structure - the instructions here can be used for either! There is no checkout limit for RBdigital materials!
On the home page you will see the three main collections:
- Audiobooks (21 day checkouts)
- Magazines (No due dates)
- eBooks (21 day checkouts)
If you have items checked out, the app will automatically take you to your checkouts and not the home page. Use Menu to get back to the home page.
Menu (Three lines in top left corner)
Menu allows you to quickly navigate to Audiobooks, Ebooks, or Magazines. It also allows you to see what book you have checked out on your account.
