Access Magazines & Newspapers with a Library Account

Have you ever tried to finish a magazine article in the checkout line at the supermarket?

Keeping up with current events and hobbies doesn’t have to be difficult. Your library account gives you access to popular magazines and world-renown newspapers at your fingertips, for free. 

This article will help you learn more about how you can use RB Digital, America’s News and National Geographic through your library.

RB Digital Magazines 

Access popular publications like InTouch and Allure as well as niche publications like the American Poetry Review and Runner’s World, in addition to hundreds of others.

America’s News

From hometown favorites to nationally known publications, America’s News has it all! Don’t let pay-walls stop you from reading the news. Use your library account to access newspapers online and even print articles of interest. In addition to helping you keep up with current events, learn more about the past by browsing the archived newspapers. You can even conduct searches for your ancestors and use the resource as a genealogical tool. Visit our website to access American’s Newspapers in your web browser.

National Geographic

Why would you go to the National Geographic site, when you can read it in RB Digital, right? Wrong. The National Geographic Virtual Library offers a much more robust learning experience than the simple magazine version we see at the store. Search images, explore topics, even read books and watch videos in the virtual library. This is a great resource for both adults and children. National Geographic Kids offers information covering all the topics your little scientists want to know. Visit our website to access National Geographic in your web browser.
