RBdigital offers over 100 digital versions of popular magazines for you to read on your computer, tablet or mobile device.

How do I get it?

    1. Visit DBRL’s digital magazines page using a web browser (on a computer or tablet) and click the “Create New Account” link.
    2. Enter your library card number and follow the prompts to create an account using your email address and a password you create.
    3. Browse, check out and read your favorite magazines using your device’s browser.
    4. If you want to download and read your magazines on a tablet or mobile device, download the RBdigital mobile app (for Android, Apple devices or Kindle Fire), and sign in to the app using the email and password you created to log in to DBRL’s digital magazines page. You can use the app to read your magazines offline and download additional magazines.


How many magazines can I download?

You can download an unlimited number of magazines, but you are limited by the space available on your device or computer.

I checked out some magazines using a computer’s browser. How do I now use the RBdigital app to read them offline?

Make sure you have logged in to the RBdigital app (for Android, Apple devices or Kindle Fire) with the same email and password that you created when signing up for RBdigital (or Zinio for Libraries, if you were a Zinio user). Once you log in, your magazines will automatically appear in the app.

What happens to the magazines I downloaded using the Zinio app once I switch to the RBdigital app?

When you delete the Zinio app, all downloaded magazines will be removed from your device. The new RBdigital app will remember your previous check-outs, but you will need to re-download those magazines to make them available offline for reading in the new app.

Do I have to return magazine titles once they are downloaded to my device?
No, the magazines will remain on your device until you decide to delete them. To remove or restore RBdigital titles, click on the Edit button in the RBdigtial app or edit your Reading List in your RBdigital online account. To remove RBdigital titles, tap the X on the Magazine Cover, or choose Return next to the Read button.
