Magazine Readers, Take Note!
Greenwich Library will be moving our digital magazines from RBdigital to the Libby app as part of our OverDrive collection on February 22. You will continue to be able to browse, borrow, and enjoy all the same great magazines you loved now in Libby.
If you have already been enjoying the Libby app, there will be no change, other than you may notice even more great magazine titles available for you to borrow.
A sample of the thousands of digital titles available includes The New Yorker, Good Housekeeping, Vanity Fair, Cook’s Illustrated, Kiplinger’s, National Geographic, Vogue, Conde Nest Traveler, House Beautiful, Wired, Bazaar, Rolling Stone, and New Scientist.
