Save hundreds of pounds with free magazine subscriptions from Vale of Glamorgan Libraries.


The RB Digital eMagazines service has now moved to Overdrive.


More than 3,000 popular magazines are now available to download and read on any device 24/7. For the first time, users with a library card can read digital magazines on Libby, the award-winning reading app from OverDrive. Top titles include The Economist, National Geographic, Vanity Fair and many hundreds of other popular magazines from around the world previously available through the RBdigital app.

Digital magazines through Libby have no waiting lists or reservations, do not count towards checkout limits and provide readers the option to renew their selections. Welsh Libraries borrowers can browse lists of magazines within the app and search by format to find available titles. 


Libby will seamlessly connect first-time users and experienced readers alike with the Welsh Libraries eMagazines collection. Readers may browse and instantly borrow titles then start reading for free with a valid library card. This service is compatible with all major computers and devices – iPhone®, iPad®, Android™ phones and tablets and Chromebook™.  All titles automatically expire at the end of the lending period and there are no late fees. Readers can also download titles onto Libby for offline use.
