Zinio is a service which allows you to read digital copies of current and popular magazines on your computer, tablet, smartphone, or other mobile device. Choose from over 100 popular magazines like Newsweek, Redbook, Food Network Magazine, and Cosmopolitan. Download as many magazines as you'd like from zinio.com--twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
What do I need to use Zinio?
You'll need a device with internet access and a web browser. You can also download up to 500 issues with the Zinio app (available through iTunes, Google Play, and Blackberry World.) The Zinio app only allows you to view items you've downloaded from the site--in order to download items, you must download them directly from the library's Zinio site.
NOTE: If one web browser doesn't allow you to look through the library's magazine collection, try another. Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer seem to work the best with the Zinio website.
NOTE: The Zinio app is only available for the NOOK HD+ through Google Play. Currently, Zinio apps are not available for any other type of NOOK, but availability may be subject to change. Zinio may be accessible through the NOOK browser depending on the memory of your NOOK.
How do I get started?
In order to download magazines, you will need to set up two accounts--a library account (to access M/RCPL's collection) and a Zinio account. You must use the same email address and password for both accounts.
How do I download magazines?
What if I'm interested in a magazine the library doesn't have?
Some major magazine titles, such as Time, Sports Illustrated, People, and Ebony, are not available through M/RCPL's subscription. This is because some publishers won't license to public libraries. You can subscribe directly from zinio.com, but you'll have to pay for the subscription. (NOTE: Magazine availability is subject to change.)
Can I download something other than magazines?
Your library also subscribes to OneClickDigital, where you can download classic eAudiobooks, with titles such as Anna Karenina, Great Expectations, and Pride and Prejudice.
