Website maintenance - Wednesday, 19 May 2021

Our website will be down for essential maintenance between 8.00pm and midnight on Wednesday, 19 May 2021. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

eMagazines, eNewspapers and eComics

Changes to digital access

Please note: Magazines and comics have transferred to the Libby app. You will still be able to browse, borrow, and enjoy all the same magazines and comics as in the RBdigital app.

Our eNewspapers will not transfer over until 18 May 2021, so you can still view them via the RBdigital app until then. Just tap the Press Reader icon in the RBdigital app to stream thousands of newspapers from over 100 countries and in 60 languages. Alternatively you can read them via your browser.

The Libby app is easy to use and will guide you through the setup process to get you connected to our library in just a few minutes. You will just need your device, your library card number and PIN number to get started.

You can download the Libby app from the IOS, Android, or Windows 10 app store. The minimum system requirements are IOS 9 and Android 5. For Kindle Fire tablet users the Amazon Store doesn’t have the Libby app available to download, but you can download the Overdrive app to access the service.

To get started:

  • open the app and select 'I’ll search for my library' and then enter 'Swindon'.
  • enter library card and PIN number
  • select 'next' to enter our collection of magazines and comics

You are now ready to start downloading and reading a selection of over 3000 magazines and 1200 comics.

Alternatively, you can sign in with your library card and PIN on the Swindon Libraries Overdrive website to read the magazines and comics via your browser on your PC or laptop.

Age restrictions

Not all content on the site may be appropriate for all age groups. Access to the site is not limited by age. Monitoring of a minor’s use of the collection is the responsibility of the parent, guardian or provider of content.
