For those who previously used Zinio for Libraries:


The transition should be seamless for those who previously used our website link to read magazines on a computer. The same Username and Password created for Zinio can be used for RBdigital.


Those who previously used the Zinio app on mobile devices will have to download the RBdigital app (the Zinio app will still work through April 3, 2018). Magazines currently checked out will automatically transfer to the new app, but they will have to be re-downloaded for reading. Note for first time users: before using the mobile device app, new users must first go to RB digital from our website to create a Username and Password.


If you have any questions, ask at the library circulation desk and we can help you make the transition to RBdigital magazines!
