RBDigital is Oakville Public Library’s digital magazine service, available to Oakville Public Library cardholders. There are nearly 100 up-to-date magazines available for your enjoyment! Questions? Take a look at our FAQ below.

How many magazines can I borrow?

You can check out as many magazines as you like using your Oakville Public Library card – there is no limit!

Do I have to return the magazines?

You have the option to keep or delete the magazines you have checked out. Unlike library books and physical magazines, digital magazines from RBDigital do not need to be returned and are yours to keep for as long as you wish!

Can I get back issues of a magazine?

RBDigital has access to some back issues of particular magazines, but it depends on the title. If back issues are available, a button appears beside the magazine to notify you.

Why do you have some magazines and not others?

Some magazines are not available through RBDigital, or are only available for individual purchase and not through the library service. Occasionally a relationship between RBDigital and publisher ends, thus ending our ability to offer it digitally. If there is a magazine that you wish OPL to subscribe to, please e-mail oplreference@oakville.ca so that our Collections Team may consider it for purchase (if it is available).

I have been receiving promotional e-mails from RBDigital. How do I unsubscribe?

Sign into your account, choose Preferences on the Account Settings menu on the left side of the screen, change your e-mail preferences to No, and click Save Changes.

How do I download magazines to my tablet or smartphone?

You may then download the RBDigital app. When you sign in, all of your magazines will appear. You may also browse OPL’s RBDigital collection in the app as well.

 

If you wish to send a question to Oakville Public Library staff, please feel free to contact OPLReference@oakville.ca. We would be happy to help!
