The library does not have an official preferred or recommended RSS reader. Many email packages support RSS subscriptions, or you could install a free feed reader such as FeedDemon.

If you use Firefox (any version), Safari in OS X 10.4 or higher, or Internet Explorer 7 or higher you can subscribe using your browser.

If you prefer a web-based reader try Google Reader or Bloglines (both free).

Alternately you may like to subscribe on your custom home page such as Netvibes or iGoogle.
