Borrow your favourite magazines from your local library service. Users with a library card can read digital magazines on Libby, the award-winning reading app from OverDrive, or by visiting your library authority website. 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.

To use this service you must be based in the UK and be a registered member at a participating Welsh library. If you are already a library member, you can borrow e-Magazines using your library membership card number and PIN.

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.

To get started enjoying digital magazines, download Libby or visit your local authority website.
