Zinio for Libraries is now RB Digital

Zinio for Libraries has merged with RBdigital.  To access your magazine collection, please download the new RBdigital app.  Note that your username and password will remain the same.

The Zinio for Libraries app will remain on the device until patrons delete it.  When the Zinio for Libraries app is deleted, all downloaded magazines will be removed from their device, freeing up memory. The new RBdigital app will list all previous checkouts, but those checkouts will need to be downloaded again as needed.

The Great Library Road Trip!

The road under your feet…
The wind in your hair…
Exploring new destinations…

Take a wild ride around the PALS Plus library consortium with The Great Library Road Trip Contest – Explore the World of PALS Plus! PALS Plus, the library consortium of Passaic and select Essex County township libraries invites everyone to visit their local library and pick up a copy of The Great Library Road Trip Contest – Explore the World of PALS Plus! Official Map.

Maps showcase participating libraries and specially designated landmarks or destinations that you can visit and explore.  Have your map stamped at each library you visit.  Road trippers will be entered into a drawing for an American Express Gift Card.  The more library visits, the more chances!  Return your stamped map to any PALS Plus library by September 5, 2017 to be entered into the drawing.

Summer is the perfect time to travel and explore with family and friends or on your own.  The destinations are endless!  Each community has a special place that makes it unique.  One such place is the public library.  Libraries are portals to learning and exploring the wide world around us.   For additional information about The Great Library Road Trip Contest – Explore the World of PALS Plus! please contact your local PALS Plus Library.  Library contact information can be located at www.palsplus.org on the Members page.
