Why will Brampton Library no longer offer RBdigital?

Though Brampton Library has offered access to magazines through RBdigital for many years, the digital media landscape is constantly changing and evolving. Previously known as Zinio, RBdigital is coming under the ownership of KKR & Co. media company and will therefore no longer be operating as an independent library service. 

Though the last day for RBdigital access will be December 31, 2020, we are pleased to provide access to thousands of full-colour, digital issues of magazines through PressReader. See getting started with PressReader to learn more. 

When is the last day I can use RBdigital?

The last day for Brampton Library cardholder access will be December 31, 2020.

Will I be able to access my downloaded magazines after RBdigital goes away?

No. After December 31, 2020, RBdigital users will no longer be able to access their accounts, including downloads, wishlists, history, etc. Unfortunately, due to subscription and hosting restrictions, downloaded magazines cannot be transferred from the app to your device.

We invite you to try PressReader for access to current and popular magazines. You can download full colour, digital versions of magazines to read offline.

PressReader Care offers instructions on managing downloads, including setting up automatic downloads, sending a download to a specific device, and more: https://care.pressreader.com/hc/en-us/articles/205437485-Managing-Downloads-
