AcornTV has made the decision to no longer serve library accounts and to focus on personal consumer accounts.

RBDigital, provider of AcornTV and additional library services was recently acquired by OverDrive. RBDigital library services was retired on May 20, 2021. However, OverDrive is continually improving digital library services offering thousands of magazine titles including foreign and specialty titles and a vast collection of audiobooks and ebooks offered by The Highland Public Library to Ulster County residents free with a library card through the OverDrive/Libby app.

“Overdrive continues to try to come to some agreement with AcornTV. We hope AcornTV will be back in the future and are disappointed with their decision. However OverDrive continues to add thousands of titles for patrons’ enjoyment through their Libby app,” says Julie Kelsall-Dempsey, Library Director.
