This summer, we’re holding a photo contest – with an alphabet twist! Be on the lookout for letters in your everyday life that spell out one of our Reading By Design buzzwords: STEAM, Book, Read, Library, Plainfield, and Design.
What counts as a “letter” you ask? Just about anything – from architectural features to everyday objects. Be creative!

The former downloadable magazine service, Zinio, has changed its name to RBdigital and has a new app. The RBdigital app is available for Android, iOS, and Kindle Fire. Starting August 1, a notification within the current Zinio for Libraries app will alert you to the availability of the new RBdigital app and give the option to download. The Zinio for Libraries app will become obsolete by the end of September, so make sure to update to the new app (your login credentials will remain the same) soon.
