Rodman Public Library has changed our digital magazine service offered by RB Digital (formerly Zinio). With this change, we are adding 37 new magazine titles and up to 2 years of their back issues to our digital magazine offerings. Unfortunately, this changeover will require users who previously registered to re-register for the service. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
