What is the difference between RBDigital and Zinio?

Zinio for Libraries merged with RBDigital. If you already have the Zinio for Libraries app, you will need to download the RBDigital app from your device app store (see links under this page’s Get Started tab). To access your existing account settings, you will use the same username and password on the new app (but you should add your Lafayette card information).

Zinio also sells directly to individuals. To avoid paying for magazines, select from the library’s collection at http://www.rbdigital.com/boulderco. Magazines offered at www.zinio.com or through the "shop" option in the Zinio app are for sale to individuals.

Can I also access eBooks and Audiobooks?

No. The Lafayette Library and the Flatirons Library Consortium only offer digital magazines. You may borrow eBooks and audiobooks using the Overdrive or Libby apps. Learn more.
