Our collections include traditional print books, audio books, and downloadable e-books for viewing on a number of devices like readers, tablets and phones. All books in all formats can be found in the PINES catalog of over 11 million titles.
Audio books and e-books are only borrowed from your local library or another SGRL system library; they cannot be borrowed through the PINES system.
Our audio books and e-books are accessible through the RBdigital service, which you can access using your PINES Library Card. RB Digital allows users to browse our digital book, audio book, and magazine collections only (not our physical collections). You can view and download digital items directly from RB Digital. Books and audio books are checked out for two weeks and can be renewed if the item is not on hold. They will automatically disappear from the user's account when the due date is reached, so there are never any late fees with digital material check outs. Magazines do not have a due date.
