Zinio is a database of downloadable magazines. We were able to join an existing group of Iowa libraries who offer Zinio to their communities in order to bring a wide variety of downloadable magazines to our community. This cooperation allows each of these libraries, and now us, to offer a larger variety of magazines to our communities than we would be able to do on our own.

Zinio is a database of downloadable magazines. It offers a wide selection of titles to choose from. We are happy to be able to offer our library users this service now. Follow the link below to the Zinio site in order to get started. You will need to register for an account before you can begin. To register you will need your basic information but will also need your library card number. When entering your library card number DO NOT put a space in between the the P and the Number. After registering for an account you will be all set to go!

You may read these magazines on your computer/laptop or you can download the app 'Zinio for Libraries' on your device and have access to your magazine collection on the go!

Some neat features of Zinio include no waiting lists for magazine issues, access to back issues, no check out period (keep the magazine as long as you want), no limit to the number of magazine titles/issues you check out, and a sign-up to receive emails when the new issue of your favorite magazine is released!
