How It Works

Signing Up for an Account

To start reading a magazine, you will need to sign up for an account (if you already have an account, just sign in with your current username and password):

  1. Go to Kenosha's RB Digital Magazine Collection page.
  2. Select Create New Account, in the top right-hand corner.
  3. Enter your Library Card Number. Then you will be asked to enter your first and last name and your email address, and to create a password (your password must be at least 7 characters and include both letters and numbers).
  4. Click Create Account to agree to the site’s Terms of Use. Afterwards you can browse the titles available right away.

The next time you visit, all you need is your email and the password you created to login.

Checking Out Magazines

As soon as you’ve set up your account you can browse the collection and check out magazines right away. The collection is organized with the most popular titles on the first page, then alphabetically after that. You can search for titles in the search box above the titles or filter the list by a particular genre.

To check out a magazine, select the check out icon below the magazine cover on the right. Clicking directly on the magazine cover will bring you to a description page, where you can also select Check Out to add the magazine to your personal collection. Once you’ve checked out a magazine, you can choose to keep browsing or select Start Reading to begin reading your magazine in your browser immediately (be patient while the magazine loads, especially if you are using a slower Internet connection). See below for more reading options.

Email Notifications

You can set up notifications to be sent to your email address when a new issue of your favorite magazine becomes available online. You can do this either by checking “Email me when the next issue is available” when first checking out a magazine to your collection or by selecting individual magazines in the My Preferences section.

  1. Click the account icon in the top right-hand corner of the site and select My Preferences.
  2. In the New Issue Notification section, scroll down the options and click the plus sign to add a magazine to your email notification list. (Some of the magazines in this list are no longer available because of unrenewed subscriptions. Please reference the RB Digital Magazine Collection to see the titles we do currently subscribe to.)
  3. Click Update when finished selecting your favorite magazines.
