New RB Digital App

Have you downloaded the RB Digital App yet? In addition to our large collection of downloadable books, audiobooks and films through Overdrive, we also have books, audio books and magazines from RB Digital. In my car, I can play the audios through my phone as easily as if I were making a phone call through my car's audio system. I downloaded the app, checked out an audio book, and downloaded the book through my home Wifi, When I got in the car, I made sure my car audio system was on, opened the app on my phone, selected the book, hit play, pushed the AUX button my car has by the AM, FM, and CD buttons, and there was my audio book coming through my car's speaker system!
