The RB Digital app is the best way to access Willard's collection of free magazine subscriptions. I'm not a huge magazine reader, but I like to have them on hand when I'm traveling or when I know I'm about to spend a lot of time waiting.
When I have a trip coming up or a series of medical appointments, I pull out my tablet, fire up RB Digital, and start downloading. The process doesn't take very long, and you get the full issue just as it appeared in print—but without the grime of a waiting room copy or the price tag from the checkout lane.
At home, I used to order a variety of subscriptions so that my family had something to read for every mood and occasion. I spent a lot of time sorting (Maybe that's just a librarian thing?), tidying, and finally recycling issues.
These days, I get BirdWatching, National Geographic, and The New Yorker delivered regularly to my tablet, but you may also see me reading Glamour, Vanity Fair, or OK for my Kate Middleton fix. When I'm on a health kick, I can find new recipes and exercise tips. When I feel like baking for the holidays or getting ready for the next season, I can pick up an issue for new inspiration.
You can read an issue at a time, or you can download back issues if you want to catch up. You can also set alerts to be notified when new issues are released.
Reduce cost and clutter and increase reading time with RB Digital and your Willard Library card!
