The Ridgefield library is pleased to announce the availability of Zinio, a new online resource. Now Library cardholders can read complete full color, interactive digital magazines on computers or on a range of mobile devices.
Getting started with Zinio is easy. Just go to our website to browse our Zinio for Libraries collection and follow the instructions for setting up your Zinio account with a username and password. Select from 46 magazines covering a wide range of interests including Newsweek, O the Oprah Magazine, Eating Well, The Atlantic, Rolling Stone, and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. Current issues are released simultaneously with print versions and available for instant browser streaming and app-driven offline viewing. Check out as many issues as you want and keep them in your account as long as you wish with no need to worry about due dates. Recent back issues are also available for most titles.
Zinio’s stunning interface recreates a magazine page for page, including full color pictures, intuitive navigation, and key word searches for articles. Some titles such as National Geographic also offer enhanced elements such as audio and video that bring the content to life.
The Library’s Adult Services Staff is happy to provide assistance in getting started with this convenient new way to access your favorite magazines.
