RBdigital Magazines and Audio eBooks

Several months ago, Zinio for Libraries became RBdigital Magazines. The RBdigital App combines digital magazines (formerly Zinio) with a new collection of audio eBooks. Most of these new audio eBooks are not available from Overdrive. They will check out for 21 days. Most of them will be unlimited simultaneous use. That means no hold lists!

The RBdigital App is available for iOS (Apple) devices, Android devices, and Kindle.

As of Tuesday, April 17, 2018, the Zinio for Libraries app will be retired. Please install the RBdigital App if you want to continue reading digital magazines on your mobile device. Any Zinio magazines you have borrowed will carry over to your account in the RBdigital App but you will have to download them again.

You can search, borrow, download and read magazines and listen to audio eBooks within the RBdigital App or from your desktop or laptop computer. When searching from your computer, use one of these sites:

Your existing Zinio login (generally your email address and your password) will work for RBdigital magazines and audio eBooks.

If you don't already have an RBdigital or Zinio login, you will be prompted to create an account the first time you try to borrow an audio eBook or magazine.

You must create your new RBdigital account from Denver Public Library's RBdigital web site (not from within the RBdigital app.)

The RBdigital sites for digital magazines and audio eBooks are available from our Downloads page. In addition to the websites, you’ll be able to search from within the RBdigital App on your mobile device, and all titles will be listed in our online catalog. Use the Web Link in the catalog record to borrow and download.

It's worth exploring all the options on our Downloads page. In addition to the new RBdigital audio eBooks and digital magazines, we also offer Flipster digital magazines and Overdrive eBooks, audio eBooks and streaming video.

If you have questions, use the help link in the app or on the RBdigital website to get help straight from the source, or Ask Us an Audio eBook or digital magazine question.

I do wish to re-emphasize part of the this great new information about RBdigital eAudiobooks. If you love eAudiobooks, Denver Public now offers a ton (about 6,000) completely unique and exclusive eAudiobook on this new service (App and/or Browser experience). Also, with the eMagazines and these exclusive eAudiobooks on the same App, it's a 'readers' dream come true. * When I refer to exclusive, I mean that the content on the RBdigital App and website browser is NOT found on any other service that Denver Public Library provides.

Thank you Denver Public Library! I'm a fan of your regular Overdrive audio ebooks but this service is even more amazing. No holds or wait time.
