RBdigital Magazines & Video

The RBdigital platform provides access to magazines, video entertainment and online education. Read full issues of your favorite magazines on your tablet, smartphone, or computer. Watch popular series on Acorn. Learn with tutorials from Hoonuit and ArtistWorks.

PLEASE NOTE: Many RBdigital services have been acquired by Overdrive. In early 2021, the digital magazine service will transition to Overdrive Libby. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available. 

A Des Plaines Library card is required to use this service. Sign up for a library card here.

Start using RBdigital

Unlimited video streaming:


You'll need a few things:

  1. Your DPPL library card
  2. A library RBdigital account
  3. A RBdigital App for your iPad, iPhone, Android device, Kindle HD/HDX for downloading and offline reading

No Overdue dates, no late fees!

Magazines stay in your account until you delete them (as long as the library has the service). You do not have to return them and they do not expire.
