Why hello there Zinio

Have you ever had the problem when you are going away and want to catch up on your magazines or need something easy to read on your lunch break or the weekend? Can’t make it into your library for that magazine? If you said yes, grab your tablet or smart phone and download the Zinio eMagazines app  – you will not be disappointed.

Founded in 2001, Zinio is a digital newsstand that has grown and houses over 5,500 magazines that you can discover, all at the tips of your fingers. From lifestyle to science, art to technology, you will be sure to find the latest issue of your favorite magazines. This means you will no longer have to stalk the newsstands to see if the current issue is now out, because with Zinio they can send you an email to notify you, so you are able to stay up to date with all the latest news and trends.

Their content is not limited, so you will find brands that are not on your library’s shelves. #BONUS! For me I’m currently in love with the magazine ‘Renegade Collective’ [Also, check out the website] because it is a publication with a fresh perspective on the issues that matter – business, design, tech, social change, fashion, travel, food, film and art…all things that I love and am passionate about.

There is also no limit to how many issues you can download and there is no due date. Yep that’s right you read it, you DO NOT have to return your issues, you can keep them and read them over and over as much as you like and when you have finished just simply delete them. It is perfect if you want to bookmark that page with the delish chocolate cake recipe on it you will want to make later.

If you usually prefer your printed copy of your magazine that is still great, come say hi the next time you visit us, but for those who are constantly on the go and have their iPad attached to their hand, Zinio eMagazines will be a great app for you. Enjoy and happy reading 🙂

  1. Hi, I downloaded the “zinio for libraries” app, opened it, answered all the demographic questions, but when I got to “username/email address”, I put in my email address. Then for “password” I put in my Cockburn Library PIN number. It didn’t work. So I tried my library card number for username, and my PIN for password. It still didn’t work. It just kep saying “registration required”.
    Help!

      Hey Claire,

      To access eMagazines on the Zinio app you will need to create a separate Zinio account. This can be created in 2 ways:

      1. From the app: Click on the Forgot password link on the login screen. This will take you to the Zinio website, where you can register in the top right corner. Once you have created the account you can return to the app and log in.
      2. From the Zinio page on our website: Follow the Visit Zinio eMagazines Now! link. This will take you to the Zinio website, where you can register in the top right corner. Once you have created the account you can return to the app and log in.

      Please Contact Us and let us know if you are having any further issues.

      Thanks.
