Upcoming Special Events

Rbdigital to LibbyRbDigital Moving to Libby!

Beginning October 1st

The RBdigital platform is being retired and all library patrons are being transitioned to Overdrive’s Libby app. The transfer is expected to take place on or around October 1, 2020.

What does that mean for you?

  • You will use the Libby app to download and enjoy ebooks and audiobooks. (Note: you will continue to use RBdigital until the transition on October 1st).
  • Making the transition is easy. Just enter your library name and library card number in the Libby app (available free in both Apple and Google stores), and you’re on your way!
  • Your current holds, checkout history, and wish lists will NOT transfer over to the Libby app. We suggest you record those titles elsewhere so you do not lose them.
  • The checkout of magazines is not a part of Libby at this time, but should be in the future.
  • Most devices and eReaders, including the Kindle Paperwhite, are compatible with the Libby app.

You should see messages on your RBdigital screen with further instructions soon. Please talk with your local librarian if you have any questions.

Film Screening for Lillian Smith: Breaking the Silence

September 13th~19th, 2020

The Peachtree City Library is happy to share this free screening of Lillian Smith: Breaking the Silence thanks to a collaboration with the Georgia Public Libraries and the Georgia Humanities.

The 52-minute documentary (2019) by the father-son team of Hal and Henry Jacobs tells the story of Lillian Smith (1897-1966), who was one of the first white, Southern authors to speak out against segregation. Her novel Strange Fruit (1944) made her a nationally known writer and she used her fame to become an activist and early supporter of the Civil Rights Movement. All but forgotten now, Lillian Smith challenged the status quo and in doing so earned the respect of Martin Luther King, Jr., James Baldwin, John Lewis, and others. For more information email Cherese Cadet at ccadet@peachtree-city.org..
