Can I check out magazines from the library?


Yes, you can check out physical and digital magazines from the library. You can check out a physical magazine in any library and/or you can ask library staff, in person or over the phone, to look for a specific issue at another library and have it sent to pick up at the library of your choice.

To read a digital magazine from RBdigital:

  1. Visit RBdigital, sign in with your library account information, then click Create New Account at the top right.
  2. Find the magazine(s) you want and click Checkout. In the pop up window, click Start Reading to begin reading the magazine in your browser. (There are links at the bottom of that page to install the app for offline reading on an iPad/iPhone, Android device, or Kindle Fire HD/HDX.)

Once you've created a new account, you can also download the RBdigital app and read magazines on your mobile device.
