What is the Digital Library?

The Shoalhaven Libraries Digital Library is your library away from the library. We have a great range of digital books, audio books, magazines, and databases for use at home. Our digital library is available on your PC, Mac, tablet and smartphone.

What do I need?

All you need is a valid Shoalhaven Libraries membership and a PC, Mac, Apple, Windows or Android device.

If you would like access to our digital library, but are unable to make it to one of our branches or the mobile library, you can join online as a digital only member.

How do I get started?

Visit our eBooks and Magazines page to get started.

Overdrive and rbdigital have dedicated apps available on the App Store, Google Play Store and Windows Store for tablet or smartphone. When using Overdrive Zinio or one of our databases, you will be prompted to log in using your library card number and PIN. By default PIN is your date of birth (eg. 01071980). Please remember to change your PIN via Member Services. If you are having problems logging in, please contact the library on 4429 3705.

I need more help!

If you have read our guides and are still having trouble using our digital library, please contact the library on 4429 3705.

Nowra Library provides a quick walk-in 5-10 minute troubleshooting service called Tech Tuesday. This service is available every Tuesday between 9.30am-5pm so if you're having problems with the Zinio or Overdrive app, bring your device into Nowra Library and a staff member will be able to assist you (no booking necessary)
