Reading Magazines with RBdigital

When you use RBdigital  through your Liverpool Public Library Card, you basically get your own free subscription to the magazines that you're interested in, and you can keep them for as long as you want, with no overdue fines. You can read them on your desktop computer or on your mobile device.

Current Issues: New issues are released simultaneously with print editions, and many are available for immediate download before print editions arrive at the library.

Always-Available Backlist: As collections grow, so does the digital backlist for anytime checkout and reading.

Collection Management: Using personal accounts, patrons can check out magazines and read them online through browsers or download them on the RBdigital app.

No-Limit Permanent Checkouts: Patrons can check out as many issues as they want and keep them in their account as long as they wish.
