Zinio is now RB Digital Magazines

Recorded Books is re-branding its digital magazine service. Zinio will become RB Digital.

Starting August 2nd, you may be receiving an in-app notification directing you to download the new RBdigital app. While the Zinio app will remain active for some time, it will not be supported. We recommend you switch to RBdigital sooner rather than later.

Once downloaded, you will log into the RBdigital app with the same credentials you used to sign up for Zinio. Upon login, you will have access to all your downloaded magazines plus these great new features:

  • Checkout/download in app (no more having to go between the website and app)
  • Title search, click on a title for the full backlist
  • New issue notification
  • Multiple view support – read in landscape or portrait
  • Article reading options including, contrast choice (black on white or white on black) and convert article to text
  • Filtering/Sorting
  • Browse by cover or by subject (in advanced search)

We hope this transition is a smooth one; however, if you experience difficulty please don’t hesitate to email downloadable@bccls.org or contact RBdigital support directly at yoursupport@recordedbooks.com

Bergen County Senior Services will present a Brain Health Event on Wednesday, August 30, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. This is a HealthEASE Senior wellness event for all Bergen County adults age 60+.

Learn tools and strategies to help and maintain your brain health!

For more information and to register please call 201-336-7438.
