RB Digital Audiobooks

Little Compton residents now have access to a suite of digital audiobooks via RB Digital — in addition to those already offered by the Ocean State Libraries eZone — thanks to the Bradford Livingston Memorial Book Fund.

You can listen to these digital audiobooks via your computer’s web browser, or by downloading the RB Digital app to your smartphone or tablet.
