Did you know that you can check out some of your favorite magazines for free using RBdigital with just your library card? If you have been using RBdigital, we have some good news!

Starting October 10, 2018, RBdigital will enable patrons to automatically check out new issues of magazines as soon as they are available. This will allow you to always have the latest issues of your favorite magazines waiting for you in your RBdigital account. When checking out a magazine with your library card, you will be able to select if you want to be notified via email of the availability of future issues and have those automatically checked out and available for reading in the RBdigital app and web patron interfaces. If you have already opted to be notified when future issues of your favorite magazines are available, then you will be sent an email from RBdigital that the magazine will automatically be checked out for you if the magazine is eligible for automatic checkout.
