Do you like reading magazines?

Our online collection of magazines has moved from RBDigital to Overdrive.

All the same great titles are still available, and you have a choice of apps to use to read them:

Libby – great if you like a modern interface and a wide range of functionalities. Start on the home page. Scroll down until you come to Popular Australian Magazines. You can download the magazines to your device so that you can enjoy them when you’re offline.

Overdrive (the classic app) – for those of us who prefer a more traditional app layout. Click in Collections then scroll down to Magazines. You will only be able to read the magazines while online if you choose this app.

Click here to find out more about this and other e-resources that are available with your library membership.

And if you would like to view a video tutorial that is specific to your device and can guide you through the installation process,  click here!

Action packed Historical Thrillers

If you are a fan of action-thriller authors like Preston & Child, Matthew Reilly, Dan Brown or Andy McDermott, you might enjoy the books by Steve Berry.

Berry’s historical thrillers mix facts, theories, conspiracies and a lot of action.

His main character, Cotton Malone, appears in many of his novels, and as they stand alone, you can read them in any order.

You can also find some of his books in Audio Format on CloudLibrary
