With our new PrinterOn link, you can print from home, from your phone, or from our Chromebooks at the library with mobile printing. It’s as easy as clicking the link and following the directions. The only exceptions are printing secure documents like boarding passes and forms. For those we still request that you use the lab computers. Documents may be picked up at the library within 12 hours of request.
Please note —- after Labor Day the library will be experimenting with a time change for Mondays. We will shift our hours to Noon to 8 p.m. This will give us additional evening hours for working families and double our programming time.
Through your RBDigital app you may now access our magazine collection, Transparent Language and ACORN TV on-line from your devices with a valid North Adams library card. Click here to check it out.
Acorn TV Instructions:
In order to access Acorn TV, please open the RBdigital app and login with your username and password. Then, click the Menu button in the top left corner and select Video, then Acorn TV. On the Acorn TV details page, click the green ACCESS button. This will open your Safari Browser where you will be asked to either enter your email address and a password in order to sign up for a new 7 day membership through your library, or you will be told that an Acorn TV account already exists with your email address.
Enter the requested information or press Access Acorn TV to continue.
After you have entered the required information and activated your 7 day membership, you should be able to login to the Acorn TV app to access titles in the app. The titles will also be playable from within the Safari web-browser after you have signed up, if you prefer to use that.
If you have any difficulty, please contact your librarian.

If you are currently using Universal Class, Transparent Language, RBDigital magazines, or any EBSCO Host library services, please be aware that policy changes are happening July 1, 2018 that may require you to re-enroll in RBDigital’s services. For Universal Class, Zinio magazines, and Transparent Language you may still use the same credentials (user names and passwords) but the new app environments and database changes require signing up all over again. In the case of Transparent Language, you will be required to re-enroll and your history will be lost. We apologize for any inconvenience. On the bright side, we will be adding ACORN TV (the best of British broadcasting) and access to the different databases will be from one convenient location.
Just in time for the royal wedding, we have dropped Recorded Books’ “Indie Flix” in favor of “Access on Demand.” This new video service will offer a wider variety of educational films that support grades K to 12 education and adult life-long learning.
