Search, check out, and read the best in magazines on your computer through RBdigital! Here are the steps to follow:


1. Login to or Register with RBdigital through the library website

Connect to RBdigital through the library website. You can browse the title list before setting up an account, but you will need an account to borrow and download issues.


Log in if you already have an account or click "Create New Account" to register.

Important: If you used Zinio with Winnipeg Public Library in the past, your username and password have been transferred to RBdigital, so you do not need to register for a new account. Use your old Zinio username and password to log in. 

If you experience any problems logging in using your Zinio username and password, please connect with us through the Ask Us! form. (This problem likely has to do with your password and we can help you with resetting your password.)
