To access the library's Zinio collection, to create your accounts, and to add new magazine titles, visit the library's Zinio gateway address from a web browser. You will always use the library's Zinio gateway address to add new issues from a web browser. We recommend bookmarking this site in your browser's menu toolbar, as you will be returning to this site often.

You will create two accounts for Zinio Digital Magazines for Libraries, one to access the library collection and a second to view the magazines in a Zinio Viewer account. For ease of use, we recommend using the same password for both. The Zinio app or website is for viewing only, not checking out magazine titles. Checking out magazines requires toggling back and forth between the library site and the Zinio app. The library will never ask you for your credit card information. If you are asked for this information, you are in the wrong place!

Once you have checked out your magazine on the library's Zinio page, you can view the title in the Zinio app or website. Download the free Zinio app to view magazines on your mobile device and log in. Select Read at the top of the page to access your library titles. Remember to return to the library's Zinio page using the web browser whenever you wish to add new issues to your Zinio account from the library's collection. The library collection has no checkout period or issue limit. 

For step-by-step instructions, download this user guide.

If you require additional assistance using Zinio, please contact the Adult Services Desk at 630-924-2730.
