Rogers Public Library has expanded the magazine titles available through RBdigital.
RBdigital features full-color, digital magazines for instant desktop reading, mobile streaming, and mobile-app download. With this service, you can add new and back issues to personal reading libraries with no holds, no checkout periods, and no limits to the number of magazines checked out and downloaded. And with personal notifications for favorite magazines, you’ll never miss an issue.
National Geographic, Newsweek, Taste of Home, and Ok! are just a few of the popular magazine titles available from RBdigital. We have added children and teen interest titles, Spanish language and a few more languages. Find a wider selection of craft, food and cooking, and, home and garden magazines for inspiration while you are at home.
In addition, the RBdigital app has a new reader for magazines. The new reader provides an enhanced user experience through improved ease of use and readability. The new reader offers these features:
- New Look and Feel—A fresh new look and feel enhances the user experience and makes it easier to navigate the app. For example, now you can access the content menu from the navigation bar.
- Text to Speech*—For the first time, RBdigital users can listen to all articles in audio format, which improves reading comprehension and allows you to listen to the article while doing other things. *Available for iOS only.
- New Color Themes—In addition to the current light and dark themes, the new reader adds sepia and gray to improve readability of text and reduce eye fatigue.
- Scalable Font and Screen Brightness Controls—Instead of an action sheet selector, the new reader uses a slider control for finer grain control over the font size and screen brightness.
