RBdigital Magazines (Formerly Zinio)

Click here to begin

RBdigital Magazines (formerly Zinio) provides library patrons with FREE access to a great selection of digital magazines. There are no line-ups, no due dates and you can keep any issues you download. Magazines may be read on your computer, or on your smart device with the free RBdigital app.

Please note that Zinio has merged with RBdigital. As of October 23rd, 2017, all users who continue to use the Zinio for Libraries app will be required to migrate to the RBdigital app. Your login information will remain the same as it was with Zinio.
