Full digital copies of your favorite magazines are now available FREE to us thanks to a new program from the Round Rock Public Library! And you can read them on your iPad!
The Round Rock Public Library is pleased to announce an exciting new online service called Zinio, which offers library customers the ability to access over 100 magazines, including popular titles such as Consumer Reports, Women’s Health, Economist, National Geographic, and Rolling Stone.
The publications include the same material as in print, with advertisements, and some issues offer bonus interactive elements.
Zinio can be used on any Internet-enabled device, and readers can download the magazine so that it can be enjoyed for offline reading via an app. The unlimited, multi-use model is used by many consumers to access magazines in their digital form. Recorded Books has partnered with Zinio to provide this service to public libraries.
Round Rock Public Library cardholders may use this database for free by visiting roundrocktexas.gov/research
Simply find Zinio in the alphabetical listing to get started.
I tried this out this afternoon and found it to be very easy to login – it took me less than 10 minutes to upload Zinio to my iPad and now I have access to read dozens of my favorite magazines for free – Women’s Health, Parenting, O, US Weekly, National Geographic and so much more!
You must go to the Round Rock Library website above, login with your library card and select Zinio. Create a Zinio account and select the magazines you’d like digital copies of -and you can read them right on your laptop.
Additionally, you can download the Zinio app (iPhone, iPad, Android, etc) and view the magazines on your device as well.
Thanks to the Round Rock Public Library for making it available to us!
