E-magazine set-up

Read digital copies of your favourite magazines for free from your computer, smartphone or tablet.


Changes to the e-magazine service

Our supplier for e-magazine and e-audiobooks, RB Digital, has been acquired by Overdrive, one of the leading digital reading platforms for libraries. We have moved over to the Libby app for e-magazines and e-audiobooks.

E-magazines on tablets and smart phones

Download the Libby app from the Play Store (Android) or App Store (Apple) and:

  • open the app and select 'register now'
  • select 'Derbyshire County Council' as your library
  • login using your library card number and PIN

E-magazines on PCs and laptops

Read free e-magazines online.

  • Select 'Derbyshire' as your library
  • Log in using your Derbyshire library card number and PIN

Select the magazine you want to read and click 'start reading'. The magazine will load in your browser window.

Help logging in

If you have any difficulties logging in or need help to use the catalogue, please email: ask.library@derbyshire.gov.uk or tel: 01629 533444.

Library card number and PIN

Your library card number is the 9 digit number below the barcode on your library card.

Gold Cards and b_line cards need to be activated at your local library in order to be used as library cards. You use the 9 digit number on the back of the card next the barcode.

Your PIN is the first 2 digits and the last 2 digits of your date of birth. So, if you were born on 3 February 1970, your PIN would be 0370.
