Zinio / RB Digital Magazines Cancelled

The New City and West Nyack Libraries have cancelled our subscription to the Zinio/RB Digital Magazine service as of December 1st, 2017.  The decision was based on poor usage statistics compared to the cost of the product (per use cost exceeded the price of an individual magazine) and the knowledge that early next year the Ramapo Catskill Library System (RCLS) will be cooperatively purchasing for all libraries in the system a similar digital magazine product via Overdrive - the same service where our patrons currently download eBooks and digital audiobooks.  We will share more information about this new product as soon as it becomes available.
