With Zinio you get instant online access to copies of more than 200 popular magazines, like Cosmopolitan, Runner’s World and Food Network Magazine, including full text and photos. All you need is your library card.

Access magazines anywhere you are, using your computer, tablet, mobile device and most ereaders. You will need a web browser or the Zinio app to access digital magazines. There are no due dates or hold lists. Access magazines any time and keep them as long as you like.

Tell a friend about this cool new offering from your library. Zinio makes that easy too. Some magazines allow you to print articles or share them with friends via email or social networks.

Zinio is different from our other products in that you will need to create two account logins, one to browse the collection and get content and one to read magazines or deliver them to the Zinio app. It may seem complex at first, but once you create your accounts and begin subscribing to magazines it becomes easy.

If you want to test drive this new service, ask a librarian at 580-4555.
