Thanks for the feedback. There is a new, merged website for RBdigital magazines and audiobooks. The vendor is no longer affiliated with Zinio and we were automatically migrated to the new platform. You can continue to read your checked out magazines on your PC but will need an Internet connection. You can find your checked out magazines on the left under Checked out. Using the RBdigital mobile app allows you to download magazine titles for offline reading. We can pass your feedback along to the vendor. I hope this helps.

Thank you for the feedback. Can you please let me know which specific newspaper title you are reading? I can investigate further. Are you accessing PressReader through your device's browser at tpl.ca/pressreader?

Thank you for the feedback. Once the PressReader app is authorized it gives you full access for 1 day and 23 hours. To get another window of access you will have to open your web browser, go to tpl.ca/pressreader and sign in with your library card number and PIN. Check that you are still logged in with your PressReader personal account. Now open the PressReader app. You should now have another window (1 day and 23 hours)of access. There is no monthly limit to the number of sessions available to you. You just have to sign in again. Here is a link to a getting started guide: http://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca/pressreader-help/

Thank you for your patience. Can you please ensure you are signed in to PressReader with your email address and password after you have entered your library card and PIN. Your name should appear at the top of the screen rather than the words "Sign In." Look for the green tea cup (at the top or bottom of the app) which indicates that you are signed in. Our Getting started guide has been updated with some new screenshots that will hopefully clarify the set up of the app. http://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca/pressreader-help/ Please let me know if this works. Customers can also submit a request directly to PressReader at: https://care.pressreader.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
