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!

Mayakeniny – learn and engage with Noongar language and music

Mayakeniny (‘Sound dancing’) is a new online resource for both children and adults to engage with Noongar language and music.

  • Noongar children’s songs with karaoke videos
  • Short webisodes for learning Noongar language
  • A searchable wordlist with references to historical documentation
  • And soon to come – a map of Noongar songs from the archives, and the music from Hecate, the Noongar-language adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
