    Remove magazines from your account:

    Return checked-out magazines

    Magazines do not expire, and Public Library customers can check out as many as they would like. Removing or returning magazines is not required, though you may want to delete them to free up space on your mobile device. To remove magazine issues from your account:

    1. Log in to your RBdigital account and click My Magazine Collection at the top of the page.

    2. Click the trash can iconicon adjacent to the title/issue that you would like to remove. Because the accounts are linked through your login account, this action will update magazines available in the RBdigital app and the Zinio Reader 5 software.

    To remove a magazine while using the RBdigital app, touch and hold the book cover on your app and tap the red X icon for each magazine issue to remove items from your library. Tap Done when finished.

    On the Zinio Reader 5, choose the X for each magazine issue that you would like to delete. This will update magazines available in the RBdigital app and the online portal for RBdigital Magazines.
