What is RB Digital?

RB Digital is a service provided by the Hopkinton Public Library to library cardholders. You can browse, download, and read current and past issues of popular magazines. Download or stream as many magazines as you'd like, and keep them as long as you'd like. View, stream, or download magazines on your desktop computer or install the RB Digital mobile app on your tablet or smartphone.

How do I sign up?

Visit the RB Digital Homepage and click the "create account" button in the upper right. You will need a valid Hopkinton library card, and you will be asked to enter a valid email address and set up a password. If you have already set up an account, you can sign into your RB Digital account on any internet-enabled device by clicking on the "login" button in the upper-right.

How do I borrow magazines?

Once you create your RB Digital account and log into the website or set up the RB Digital app, the library's collection of magazines will appear on the screen. Selct the magazine and the issue number you'd like and click the cover to check it out.

How many magazines can I borrow?

You can borrow as many magazine issues as you'd like, and keep them for as long as you'd like.

How do I return or delete magazines that I've finished?

If you've logged into the RB Digital website, find and click on the link entitled "My Collection." Here you'll see the covers of all the magazines you have borrowed, and towards the bottom of each cover will be a small garbage can icon. Click on that to delete (return) the magazine issue.

If you're using the RB Digital app on your tablet or smartphone, use the menu to select "Checked Out." The next screen will show the covers of all the issues you've checked out. Click the small "x" in the upper right of each magazine cover image to delete (return) that issue.
