  • You have to create a RBdigital Magazines account
  • You can checkout magazines through the link on COM Library's website or within the app.
  • You can keep magazines on your device, they don't ever have to be returned.
  • If you device gets too full, you can still keep a magazine in the RBdigital Magazines cloud and download again later.

Get Started

Once you have the app you'll need to select Zinio for Libraries Value Collection as your library to access the magazines you've checked out.

After that magazine covers will load in the app. You can download by tapping a cover. Keep in mind that these are large graphic files so it may take a minute to download. Once downloaded you can read it on or offline. RBdigital Magazines lets you sort the magazines by date, title, or just view your downloaded magazines.

  • Turn the pages by swiping to read pretty much like you would the print version.
  • View a text or graphic table of contents and tap to go straight to a story.
  • View the page in full color graphic format or read it as text.
  • View the pages in portrait or landscape version.
  • Zoom in by double tapping a page or zoom in more by stretching the page.
