RB Digital is a free online resource provided by The Charles County Public Library that you can access with your library card.  You can download and view full color magazines, eBooks, and audio books to read or listen to offline. Unlike a library book, you do not have to return these magazines.  You can start up your own collection on your device.  

There are two ways to get started with RB Digital.  The first is on your desktop to check out and read instantly. The second way is to download the RB Digital app on your phone.  You will need your library card number and your password.  At the top of your screen you will see Southern Maryland Regional Library Association.  When you click on magazines you will see there are 3,674 magazine titles to choose from!  Once you check out a magazine you will be asked if you would like to be notified when the next issue is available.  The magazine is downloaded to your mobile device and can be read away from home offline.  

One way to help you find magazines is the search tool and the genre.  There you will find different subject matters including but not limited to business, crafts, food and cooking, family and parenting, and health and fitness, teen and travel.  You will have the option of reading previous issues. Did you love that recipe in Bon Appetit? Feel like following the fitness regimen from Women’s Health? Do you want your garden to look like the one from Martha Stewart’s Living? Downloading your favorite magazines to your device allows you to keep information you may want to access in the future. 

There is no limit to how much you can check out on RB Digital and no need to return those magazines.  So give yourself the gift of some time off and spend it with your favorite magazine today!
