Missing the latest issue of HGTV magazine or looking at vacation destinations in Conde Nast Traveler? We’ve got you covered! With limited access to libraries, customers don’t have access to the print magazines Charlotte Mecklenburg Library provides on a weekly or monthly basis. The Library has offered titles digitally for several years through RBdigital magazines, but this year we expanded offerings to include more digital magazines to enjoy at home.
There are a lot of great additions with this expanded subscription. New digital magazines include Garden and Gun, New York Magazine, New Scientist, The New Yorker, Bon Appetit, Architectural Digest, Soap Opera Digest, TV Guide, InTouch Weekly, and more! There are specific magazines on hobbies such as coin collecting, knitting, sailing, and woodworking. Children and teens can also access magazines, including Disney Girl, Chickadee, Highlights for Children, National Geographic Kids, J-14, Seventeen, Teen Vogue, and Junior Science. Click the "Filter" button on the top right side of the screen and select "Genre" to browse titles by age or category.
This expanded digital collection also provides magazines in Spanish, French, German, Chinese, Russian, and more. World Language editions of popular titles like Glamour, Cosmo, Esquire, Harper’s Bazaar, and Men’s Health are available. To find magazines in world languages, click the “Filter” button on the top right side of the page, select “Language” and check the box next to the language you’re interested in.
