RICHMOND, Va. -- The Richmond Public Library is closed indefinitely due to Coronavirus social distancing measure, but their expanded online catalog is bringing the library's services to your home.

The library has lifted the checkout limits for audiobooks, movies, comics and music to encourage online borrowing. And 7 new chanels of streaming content have been added to the onlines system.

Users can keep up with British shows on Acorn TV, catch a concert on Stingray Qello, explore telenovelas on Pongalo, attend a lecture in The Great Courses or prep for the ACT/SAT tests with Method Test prep.

All services are available in the RPDigital App, which can be downloaded on all mobile devices.

“It is very important that Richmond Public Library does everything we can to make sure people have access to our education and entertainment resources,” library director Scott Firestine said. “We’re working to expand their availability even further.”

Additional services will be added in the coming weeks, so users should check back often.
