Getting started with library audiobooks

June is Audiobook Month, which makes it a great time to give (free!) library audiobooks a try. 

Most library visitors know that we have an extensive collection of audiobooks on CD available to browse at every branch or search in our catalog

We also offer downloadable audiobooks through two services – CloudLibrary and RBdigital – which makes getting audiobooks onto a device and into your ears a simple process.  

To get started with CloudLibrary, you’ll need to download the app on the device of your choice (iOS, Android, Windows, Amazon Fire, Nook and others). When you open the app, select your state and library, then enter your library card and PIN number. 

After that, you can browse, borrow, and download audiobooks and ebooks. If you need assistance, you can reach out to your local librarian, or visit the CloudLibrary help site

To get started with RBdigital audiobooks, you’ll need to create an account online at http://washingtonmn.rbdigital.com before you download the app. When you create your account, you’ll be asked to enter your library card number, then prompted to create a username and password. 

After you download the RBdigital app, you’ll enter your username and password to get started looking for audiobooks and digital magazines. 

You can find all of our newest digital audiobooks on our website, or explore all of the audiobooks available in RBdigital

Looking for some audiobook recommendations? Here are a few suggestions from book experts around the internet to help you get started: 

Getting audiobooks from the library – through physical CDs or digital downloads – is a great way to try out different authors and narrators, or figure out when is the best time for you to enjoy an audiobook. Happy listening!
