No need to panic!!

“Zinio” is changing its name to “RBdigital Magazines.” Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to download and read magazines such as the New Yorker, Bon Appétit, the Economist, Vanity Fair and Vogue (a complete list is at the end of this post). Your username and password will stay the same, too. What is really different is that the whole process is much easier.

Why? because Recorded Books, which owns Zinio, is releasing a new app in conjunction with the name change. Previously you had to sign in to the Library’s Zinio web page to check out a magazine. Then you had to sign in to the Zinio app to read the darn thing. Now the only time you need to go to the Zinio web page is to create an account. After that, you can do everything else from the app. Or you can just read the magazine on your home computer.

If this sounds like gibberish to you, but you’d like to download and read magazines (a full list is at the end of the post), sign up for one of our Tech Tuesday sessions. We’ll get you started. If Tuesdays don’t work, call the Information Desk at 834-2281 x.3 or email larchmontlibrary@wlsmail.org and we’ll set you up with a time.

Here’s a list of the magazines available through RBdigital Magazines along with the date our subscription began. You can read any back issue in that time period.
