ROSELLE PARK, NJ - The Roselle Park Veterans Memorial Library has announced that patrons can access audiobooks and magazines through the RB Digital app.
Roselle Park residents will be able to login to RB digital using their library card number. The app offers over 3,000 magazines and over 200 audiobooks. Patrons can add magazines to their account and have them automatically checked out so they never miss an issue. The library has been finding different ways to keep serving the community even while the physical library building is closed.
To help the community access library materials during the pandemic, the library has suspended all fines and fees and has expanded access to digital resources for patrons with expired or blocked cards. Aside from offering contactless book pick-ups the library has also been handing out different craft kits at the farmer’s market in Michael Mauri Park. The library also provided a charging station to families who lost power due to tropical storm Isaias.
Tracie D. Hall, Director of the American Libraries Association, called for public libraries to continue to serve communities during the pandemic by making digital resources more accessible. UNESCO has even launched a global program to provide coronavirus information for children and adults by partnering with libraries around the world.
