New Online Magazine Service!


Recorded Books is pleased to announce Zinio for Libraries, a new online periodical catalog with magazines free for library patrons to browse.

To Access: use the following web link to get to the Zinio homepage and set up your new free Zinio account:

NOTE: there are SPECIFIC steps to set up a free account and to access magazines from a mobile device.

First, you must create a Zinio account via their website. You will need to know your library card number (under the barcode on the back). Choose the “create new account” option in the upper right corner of the screen. It will ask for your library card number and then provide a form to enter your name and a chosen password. After creating your account, follow their instructions to select any magazines you’d like to read. Once you’ve done this, you can then activate any mobile device to view the magazines you’ve selected. You have to select your reading interests online via their website first before using a mobile app to access them.

To activate your mobile device for viewing magazines, go to the app store, search for the Zinio app, and download it. When you log into the app (with the name and password you created at their website), you will see the magazines you selected via their website, ready for viewing.  You will only have to do this once from your mobile device. Going forward, it will remember your selections and log in.

If you have any questions, comments, please contact us at the library.
