Digital Magazines Available from OverDrive Through the Libby App

Our digital magazine collection in RBdigital moved to the Libby app as part of our OverDrive collection on February 1, 2021. You will continue to be able to browse, borrow, and enjoy all the same great magazines from ZINIO you loved in the RBdigital app, now available in Libby from OverDrive. If you already use the Libby app, there will be no change, other than more great titles available for you to borrow.

With your Wellesley library card, you now have unlimited and instant access to over 3,000 magazines at your fingertips! Read them online at home or on your mobile device with the Libby mobile app. You can bookmark favorite spots, print from a computer, and skip straight to your favorite articles. Once you check out a magazine issue, it’s yours to keep as long as you wish.
