Sheffield's eLibrary

Sheffield's eLibrary is free to use for Sheffield Libraries members. You will need your Library Card Number and your Library Pin Number to be able to register with Libby - see how to below.

If you need a reminder of your Library Pin Number you can contact Sheffield Libraries at:

The Sheffield eLibrary is available 24/7 .

There are vast amounts of eMagazines, eBooks and eAudiobooks to choose from in the library!

The interface for using the eLibrary has changed to Libby from 24th February 2021. The previous interface, RBDigital, should work for a few weeks but you are advised to swap over when taking out new items. There may be a few changes to the devices that can be used with Libby, e.g. Kindlefire devices are not compatible yet. We will update this page when we know the full details.

Sheffield Libraries have sent this flyer out:

From the 24th of February 2021, the Sheffield eLibrary will move from RB Digital to Libby – the one-tap reading app.

The Libby app is the easiest way to get started with the thousands of free eBooks, eAudiobooks, and eMagazines available from Sheffield Libraries.

Using Libby

  • Install the Libby app from the app store on your Android, iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch), or Windows 10 device. Or visit in your Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Edge browser.
  • In Libby, follow the prompts to find Sheffield Libraries and sign in with a valid library card.
  • Browse your library’s collection and borrow a title.
  • Borrowed titles appear under Shelf > Loans and download to the app automatically when you're on Wi-Fi, so you can read them when you’re offline.
  • Tap Manage Loan to see options like Renew and Return.

Happy reading!
